THE MOST IMPORTANT THING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT EMPLOYMENT RIGHTS
Do you think that you may have a legitimate employment discrimination claim? If yes, then you should get an experienced legal representative as soon as possible. Time is very limited when taking legal action that involves employment discrimination claims, so you need to be quick in hiring an employment discrimination legal professional.
As per the federal anti-discrimination laws, in general, a charge should be filed within 180 calendar days from the day of the discrimination – this calculation includes weekends and holidays. However, if the deadline falls on a holiday or weekend, you can file on the next business day. Remember that if you do not file your claim within 180 days, your case is invalid.
The 180-calendar day filing deadline is extended to 300 calendar days if a law prohibiting employment discrimination is enforced on the same basis by a local or state agency. Usually, these agencies are known as Fair Employment Practices Agency (FEPA).
