If you are involved in an employment discrimination case, litigation funding may help with daily living expenses or to make up for lost income.
State and federal employment discrimination laws prohibit employers from taking actions against job applicants and employees because of gender, color, race, age, religion, national origin, or disability. The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) is responsible for enforcing federal laws prohibiting any form of employment discrimination. As a result, an employer cannot fail to hire someone, fail to promote an employee, fire or harass an employee based on these factors.
Plaintiffs involved in employment discrimination litigation may be in a difficult financial situation. You may have been fired, forced to quit, denied a promotion or had your hours cut. If you’re no longer employed, you may have lost medical benefits and be dealing with medical bills you weren’t expecting.
Employers often take a hard line in employment discrimination cases to discourage other employees from going to court. Your ex-employer may try to settle a case early for a low amount knowing you are in financial distress.
