The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) was created by the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Its mission is to protect employees from all forms of workplace discrimination and from retaliation for speaking out against it.
Leeds Brown Law, P.C., has represented thousands of employees in mediation, privately and through filing an official claim with the EEOC. Our efforts have resulted in millions of dollars in monetary and non-monetary benefits for these individuals.
At Leeds Brown Law, P.C., our lawyers represent individuals and groups of employees throughout Long Island and elsewhere in the New York City metropolitan area, as well as from other parts of the nation in discrimination claims against their employers.
Handling an EEOC claim properly requires an extensive interview in order to gather all the necessary facts and evidence needed to prepare and file an official charge of discrimination. Our attorneys file this claim with the EEOC on the employee’s behalf and represent the employee throughout the EEOC’s process of investigation, mediation and resolution of the claim.
Typically, after a discrimination claim is filed with the EEOC, the commission will first attempt to offer a means for settlement between an employee and their employer. This is usually done through mediation or direct negotiation. This opportunity particularly benefits individuals who are currently employed and who wish to remain with their employer, because a quick and confidential resolution fosters a continued working relationship.
The knowledge of applicable laws and the extensive experience we’ve had in dealing with the EEOC itself are invaluable assets to our clients.
