Being a Victim of Discrimination Can Leave You Feeling Powerless.
If you have been subjected to discrimination, the assistance of an employment law attorney can be essential to the protection of your legal rights. Rich Daugherty understands the devastating consequences arising from illegal employer actions and he has the first-hand experience necessary to fight for your rights.
Under Title VII, employees must file a claim with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) within 180 days of the discriminatory action. This is a strict deadline. You will lose some of the most important federal claims available to you if you do not file a charge with the EEOC. If you have already missed the deadline, it is still important to reach out to an attorney to discuss your options.
It is unlawful for employers to discriminate against employees or applicants because of:
Unlawful discrimination may show itself in different ways:
- Refusal to Hire
- Denial of a Promotion
- Disciplinary Actions or Warnings
- Reduced Pay
- Denial of Equal Pay
- Job reassignment
If you suspect that you have been discriminated against for any of the above reasons, contact Rich Daugherty. He is experienced in representing clients who have been victims of discrimination in the workplace and will fight to protect your rights.
You are strongly encouraged to talk with an attorney before you file any discrimination charges due to the uniqueness of your case. Deadlines associated with making claims are very strict and must be met in order to avoid losing your rights altogether.
You can arrange for an initial phone conference with Rich at no charge. He represents clients throughout North Carolina and is available to meet with prospective clients outside of Chapel Hill when circumstances permit. Evening appointments are also available.
