Q: I have a right to sue letter from the EEOC. Is it possible to have an attorney fill out the form without signing it?

I will sign it and do not need to know who filled it out. I can submit documentation or breakdown the charge for filing. This is an employment issue in regards to working for The State of Alabama (twenty-three years) age/gender discrimination for wrongful termination. Based on pretext, the state wanted a younger female (under forty) was given my job (male sixty). I am looking for out of court settlement. I was fired for theft without proof. The money was at the bank put in a night depository. It was never disclosed to me when the money was discovered by the bank only that they had it. I was also charged with insubordination (my word against the supervisor) to bolster my firing. Six months later in the States position statement it was revealed the money was recovered so the firing is now based on insubordination. I have many documents proving the insubordination was from the female who got my job. I have an audio tape of a cover up meeting doing just that.

A: It's unclear what you are asking. If you have a right-to-sue letter from the EEOC, you need to ensure you file a lawsuit within 90 days of your receipt of the letter if you are intending to do so. You should contact an employment law attorney in your area as soon as possible to discuss your options of filing a lawsuit or obtaining a pre-litigation settlement.
