Delaware County Employment Attorney Discusses Responding to an EEOC Complaint
As an experienced Delaware County Employment Attorney, clients come to me all the time with questions about how to prepare a response to an EEOC complaint. Typically, when a client approaches me with a former employee or a current employee who has filed a claim with the EEOC, the first step that the employer is concerned with is preparing a response to the complaint or the claim. Unless the employer has a robust HR department, I would advise them to obtain a Delaware County Employment Attorney because responding to the EEOC complaint is similar to responding to a legal complaint in the Court of Common Pleas, or another similar venue. There are certain items that you want to make sure that you cover. There are factual allegations in the EEOC complaint that you need to respond to and you need to do that in a comprehensive manner.
If there is additional information that you think is relevant or will help the EEOC reach a faster determination through its investigation, you need to make sure that you include them. There is also the opportunity to provide relevant documentation to aid the EEOC in its investigation. It might be beneficial to you, if you don’t have a robust HR department, to hire a Delaware County Employment Attorney to guide you through the process of what you should disclose and what you might want to hold back closer.
