EEOC Complaints and Defense
The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) is a federal agency responsible for enforcing laws against workplace discrimination. Georgia employees who allege discriminatory practices at their workplace must file a formal written complaint with the EEOC within 180 days of the last act of discrimination to have their claims investigated. Upon receipt of the complaint, the EEOC will investigate the charges. These investigations may last up to a year or more, and the EEOC may attempt to resolve the complaint through a mediation process, file a lawsuit, or issue a “right to sue” letter.
