How does the EEOC determine what cases are investigated? Is there a firm that will represent me and not charge a fee.

Asked over 1 year ago - Fayetteville, NC

The EEOC didn't investigate my discrimination case because of limit resources . Truly i don't understand how that is measured . Now I am being issued a Right to Sue letter . I'm totally confused and going to court will be very expensive .

    Lawyers agree

    Answered . They base it on a review of your allegations. The charges that appear the strongest get the most resources. The weaker ones get fewer resources I.e. the EEOC spends less time investigating them.

    Answered . The cases actually investigated by the EEOC are extremely limited, as are their resources. You can pursue the matter on a contingency basis, no recovery, no fee, if your claims have merit.

    Consult an experienced local employment attorney.
