Discrimination Cases Part I

Agency Charges
  • Jay Shepherd


I’ve been using the terms lawsuit, claim, and case interchangeably, but they’re not technically the same. A discrimination claim is an allegation by the fired employee that you have committed employment discrimination. It consists of a set of alleged facts that, taken together in the context of the governing statute, leads to the conclusion that you violated that statute. The case is the mechanism by which the employee seeks to make you pay for this violation. It’s a lawsuit when the case is brought in a court, either state or federal.
