Filing a Discrimination Lawsuit
If you want to understand how or whether to sue for discrimination, speak to an attorney at our firm right away. Grant & Eisenhofer’s civil rights, sexual assault/harassment and discrimination practice group can help you determine if you are eligible to file a lawsuit and inform you of relevant time limitations for filing a potential claim.
Time Limits and Statutes of Limitations
Anti-discrimination laws give individuals a limited amount of time to file a discrimination lawsuit. How many years does an individual have to file a discrimination lawsuit? The time limit depends on the context of your situation and the laws that apply to it.
For example, if you experienced workplace discrimination in California, you may only have one year from the date that you were discriminated against to file an administrative complaint with the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH).
If you are seeking to file a discrimination lawsuit, it is critical to meet the applicable statutory deadlines. If you miss a deadline to either file a complaint or a lawsuit, you will likely no longer be eligible to file your complaint or claim.
