A: This question only contains enough information to advise that this person needs to meet with and hire a NJ attorney who specializes in civil rights law. An attorney needs to read that letter if it is a "right-to-sue" letter, Title VII claims must be filed 90 days from the date the claimant receives a right-to-sue letter. Again, given that there are several statutes of limitations at play you really need to hire an attorney to fully evaluate what you have received from the EEOC
