Defending Against a Charge of Discrimination

If your company has received notice of a charge of discrimination filed by either a current or former employee, it is important to timely retain legal counsel.  The administrative process for employers before agencies such as the EEOC and Missouri Commission on Human Rights require specific considerations and expert legal counsel.

Properly Investigating Claims of Discrimination

To properly respond to a charge of discrimination, an aggressive approach is often needed to investigate the claims and allegations of the employee and develop all appropriate defenses to the employee’s claims.  The Law Offices of Kevin J. Dolley has effectively defended discrimination claims and provided administrative agencies with position statements that effectively establish the non-discriminatory basis for the company’s actions.   

Attorney Kevin J. Dolley will explain and review the process of defending a discrimination claim and provide the needed legal counsel to make the correct decisions in defending the company against discrimination actions and limiting company liability.   

Upon filing by an employee, there will immediately be decisions to make as to how to respond to the charge of discrimination.  An investigator from the administrative agency may begin contacting the employer regarding its position in the case and to begin the investigation process.  The failure to properly respond to the charge of discrimination from the time that it is filed may create long-term problems for the case.  Depending upon the circumstances, the employer may consider engaging in the mediation process provided by the administrative agency.  

Policy and Practice Audits

Having the appropriate policies and procedures in place helps employers avoid liability.  Having this material developed and reviewed by legal counsel helps ensure compliance with all applicable state and federal requirements.  

Education and Training

It is important to counsel and educate your management staff on how to appropriately handle employment-related problems such as investigating harassment and ensuring legal compliance associated with hiring, firing and employee discipline.
