Q: I filed a complaint with the EEOC 12/16/19. The EEOC transferred my case to New Jersey Division on Civil Rights, 6/2020.
The investigator from the New Jersey Division on Civil Rights has been investigating since September 2020. I reached out to her January 4, 2021 to request a status update. She responded that she in the process of working on my case and setting up appointments with Respondent. And that she will be in touch once they are completed.
I still have not heard anything.
How long does this usually take?
How often should I be reaching out to the investigator?
I would really like this case to be over with.
Any help is appreciated.
A: It may be they are understaffed it may be long. You can consult an attorney who handles EEO matters. If the employer is in New Jersey, you will want a New Jersey attorney. Contact the New Jersey Assn for Justice--and ask for an employment law attorney. They give free consults.
