You Must Act Quickly In Discrimination and Retaliation Cases

Employment discrimination and retaliation cases have very short deadlines to take legal action. If you miss these deadlines, you may lose all legal rights to make a claim against an employer for damages. Therefore it is important to act quickly. The law requires that a “charge of discrimination” must be filed with either the EEOC, the Texas Workforce Commission (or the City of Austin Equal Employment Office) within 180 days under Texas law and 300 days under federal law from when you first learned of the discriminatory action. If you believe you were been fired because of illegal discrimination or retaliation, talk to a lawyer as soon as possible and before filing a charge of discrimination so you can get knowledgeable representation from the start.
