    Why didn't EEOC file suit on your behalf?
    If their field office is like ours, they only sue on the employee's behalf when they are in possession of the "legal holy graille:" THE SMOKING GUN!!!

    If she didn't have "the smoking gun," our office will only recommend a right to sue.

    Get an attorney and screw them into the ground.

    Let us know how you do.

    You can file a lawsuit against your former employer. The lawsuit should be filed within 90 days once you receive the "right to sue" letter.

    Long story short I worked for the state department of agriculture and was the only woman in the department for 4yrs. Other men were being hired at higher wages, 'moving up" and getting more training. I complained nothing was done. A very strange guy was hired who would say very very gross things directed at women while looking at the wall or ceiling but still very directed towards me. I again complained nothing was done at management level... well was told we had different personalities and we all had to get along. So I went above my managment to state level and "told" on them. Well I was told nothing would be held against me but ehy hired 7 men over me some off the street. I filed with the EEOC and the same day the State got the paper work of my charges I was fired. This was all April 2006. So after all this time finaly get a decision, state is in the wrong and we want to mediate. I ask for back wages and some compensation. The state never replies. I get a right to sue letter so now what do I do?? Any advise would be much liked!!
