Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) Discrimination

Avery Dooley & Noone attorneys represent federal employees through the equal employment opportunity process, beginning in the informal counseling stage, during the investigative process, throughout the Administrative Hearing process, in the United States District Courts, and, ultimately, in appeals to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and United States Appeals Courts. We have successfully litigated discrimination cases throughout the country.

If you have been discriminated against on the basis of your age, race, religion, gender, national origin, an actual or perceived disability, or some other recognized basis, you must preserve your rights in a timely manner. You may need to act quickly—usually within forty-five days of a discriminatory event—to initiate timely EEO counseling so that you can properly assert an EEO complaint.

Agencies often dismiss otherwise legitimate claims due to the fact that the complaint was not filed in a timely manner. Knowledge of the anti-discrimination laws of the United States Courts and the EEOC is required to proceed and succeed. Avery Dooley & Noone is available to assist you in any stage of the process from EEO counseling, to the formal Complaint, to the hearing and/or trial stage. Properly setting forth the facts of your case is critical to the success of your claim; contact us if you need assistance presenting your case.
