I believe I have a relatively straightforward employment discrimination case. I am interested in seeing if an administrative agency can handle it as I have been told that is much cheaper and easier than litigation. Is this pretty much the general consensus?
My question is, if I can choose either the federal EEOC or California's DFEH to handle the case (i.e. there is an overlap of state and federal laws), which agency is more likely to secure a good settlement or decision? My thinking is California is in pretty poor financial shape so the EEOC might have more of an ability to pursue it?
Thanks for your time!
