During the administrative investigation, the parties are often able to participate in mediation or conciliation to negotiate a resolution prior to litigation. Our attorneys regularly represent clients at these proceedings and bring this experience to the negotiating table for each and every client. In fact, many individuals who are proceeding through the EEOC/administrative process on their own, retain us for the sole purpose of attending mediation with them.
Right to Sue
When the investigating agency has concluded their investigation, you will receive a notice of determination or a “right to sue letter,” which allows you to then file a lawsuit alleging discrimination, harassment, and retaliation. Although agencies are able to issue a “cause determination,” which means they believe discrimination, harassment, and/or retaliation occurred, they rarely do and most individuals will receive an “unable to conclude” determination. In either case, the aggrieved employee has the right to file a lawsuit. It is important to speak with an attorney immediately upon receiving this determination as there is often a very short time period in which the lawsuit must be filed.
This is the stage where our attorneys dedicate most of their time. The lawyers at Kwall Barack Nadeau PLLC are experienced litigators who are able and willing to represent clients in throughout the litigation process, from the initial filing through trial. Our experienced attorneys are comfortable in both federal and state court and with written pleadings as well as oral arguments. We also have significant appellate experience should your case result in an appeal.
