Title VII prohibits employers from retaliating against employees for availing themselves of Title VII’s protections. Such actions include filing a charge of discrimination, participating in a discrimination investigation or proceeding or for even complaining about discrimination. Discrimination can take the form of any aspect of employment including hiring, firing, demotion, promotions, fringe benefits, or some other condition of employment.
Claims filed with the FCHR must be filed with 365 days of the date the discrimination occurred. Claims filed with the EEOC must be filed within 300 days of the date the discrimination occurred. However, it is always advisable to meet with an attorney or file your claim as soon as you can so that you don’t waive other remedies.
