  1. Best answer

    Typically, the MDCR and EEOC serve a similar function and you should be able to receive a right to sue letter from the EEOC if the MDCR decides not to pursue the action. Call your MDCR investigator to make sure you can get a right to sue letter if you want to file a lawsuit in Fed. Ct. I find that federal courts are a bit kinder to plaintiffs than Michigan courts. You will need a right to sue letter if you intend to file a lawsuit in Federal Court.
