Agencies Enforcing Anti-Discrimination Law: EEOC / TWCCRD / DFEH

Employees pursuing claims of employment discrimination, harassment and retaliation must file a Charge of Discrimination or Complaint within no later than 300 days of the alleged adverse action before pursuing a lawsuit. Federal and Texas law recognizes charges of discrimination, harassment and retaliation based on age, color, disability, national origin, sex, race and religion. California also recognizes claims based on marital status and sexual orientation. Employees must file their complaints or charges with the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), Texas Workforce Commission Civil Rights Division (TWCCRD), the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH), or a number of cities with Human Rights Commissions in California and Texas. If you need advice about where and when a charge or complaint must be filed, or need to know how to respond to agency investigations, contact Attorney Janovsky for a consultation.
