I settled with the company over violation of the wage act with an attorney. But I also put in a complaint with the EEOC for getting fired because of a disability. Now I got a letter from EEOC for a substantial weight review. Can i still sue for this matter.
It depends on the language In the settlement agreement document you signed with the company over the wage act violation. Frequently employment settlement agreement documents have clauses that prohibit the employee from pursuing any legal claims against the employer for any reason- for all actions that happened prior to the date of the settlement. If you signed such an agreement, then you probably signed away your right to pursue discrimination claims against the employer too (unless the discrimination and termination happened after your settlement agreement on the wage issue). You should contact your attorney from the wage act case and ask him or her if you have the right to pursue the EEOC matter.
