A Few Things You Can Do Right Now If You Experience Employment Discrimination

It is a big decision to file a lawsuit against your current or former employer. You may already be embarrassed, ashamed, or traumatized by the incidents leading to this point. While you make your decision to move forward with your lawsuit, make sure you take these steps to help your case move smoothly.

1. Once you contact an attorney, your attorney can advise you on how to proceed and prepare for litigation.

2. If you have not been fired, do not quit without consulting an attorney. In some cases, no matter how you look at it, quitting is still your best option to maintain your sanity. However, in many cases, your odds in litigation are better if you are still working for the employer until the employer takes other actions or the case is settled.

3. If your company has an HR department, report the discrimination in writing. This is how you get your complaint on record with the company, allowing the company to correct the issue before litigation is necessary.

4. If your company has a policy regarding employment discrimination, follow it. Once again, it is up to you to show that you took all measurable steps to resolve the issue before filing a lawsuit.

5. Gather evidence. At this point, gather as much evidence as possible. Document every incident, including what occurred, who was involved, when it occurred, and if there are any witnesses.

6. Do not waste time. Depending on the issue and the state, you have a limited time to file a claim for employment discrimination. Do not wait until it is too late.
