has anyone filled charges with the eoc? due to failure of accomodations and forcing me to go back to work before i was ready, i am contacting the eeoc. i filled out the form and have sent it back. this is the form that starts the process,intake questionarre. have you had any luck with charges and have they supported you? i am curious if i am wasting my time filing charges against my employeer. i was forced to go back to work too early after my last surgery, my accomodations were not followed by work and i was harrassed when i got back, bad evaluation after 21 years of teaching, and principal stating that i got this because i went out the same time 2 years in a row

    Welcome to Spine-Health

  • I know you're doing the right thing. It won't be easy and it will take a lot of your energy, but stay strong and be persistent. Things will go your way.
  • If anyone ever deserves to win on the merits of EOC, it is YOU. You have truly been treated in such an unacceptable manner that I hope your "employer" learns a "valuable" lesson!

    Truer words were never spoken than: "document, document; then document some more!" I remember when I worked for civil service (serving the civils), your desk calendar could be used as evidence if you happened to have "jotted" down specific notes. You seem like the type of person who has his ducks in a row when the time comes.

    Go get 'em, tiger! Let us know how things turn out for you. We are all behind you 100% (kind of like that cellular company with all those people standing behind the guy with the cell phone "Can you hear me NOW?" - that's us!)

  • i got a list of 3 lawyers from legal referral service. i had to pay $60 to get names. i called up all three and guess what 3 days later and not one has called me back. i gave a brief description of what was going on. they said they will get back to me. well i am still waiting. i am not going to hold my breath. no wonder lawyers have a bad reputation

  • Sometimes it just takes them a while to research your statements, the laws pertaining to your circumstance, to see if any other complaints have been filed against your employer (or the school board) for similar circumstances, other precedents, etc. I am confident you will receive a call back by Friday. If not call them back! You have that right to ask if they are going to help you or not.

    I can't believe you had to PAY to get their name/numbers! Gees.

    Thanks for keeping us updated on your progress (or the lack of at this point).

  • Jon...I filed with EEOC after I was fired for returning to work. EEOC interviewed me, then issued me a "right to sue" letter, which no lawyer would even talk to me unless I had received that from EEOC.
    I ultimately used the leverage of the right to sue letter to negotiate a adequate settlement with the work comp case.

    So, keep records, make notes of incidents on the job, send emails whenever possible to your Boss, and print a copy of all responses. I would call EEOC once a week to find out status of their process....they will shuffle you around, unless you keep your name in front of them.

    Good Luck..
