Well, my attorney contact says he doesn’t know any attorneys who specialize in labor law and thinks you will have a hard time finding one who will take the case on a contingent fee basis. I’m sorry–I tried.

So, I’m just going to play devil’s advocate for a moment. I’m not a lawyer, but I’ve been exposed to a lot of litigation over the course of my 20+ year career in insurance. I’m not so sure that the case would be worth a lot of money for an attorney. Typically in EEOC cases, if the court found in your favor, the defendant would simply be required to give you your job back (although they can lawfully reassign you to another position that they might feel is “safer”), and probably some amount of back pay and a little extra for whatever amount the court thinks is sufficient for any emotional distress they caused you with all of this. I know you’re pissed off about it, and rightfully so, but try not to have any unrealistic expectations about the outcome of a lawsuit.

But having said that, i wish you the best and I hope that you are able to achieve a satisfactory resolution very soon.
