Have you been subjected to unlawful employment practices at work? Nebraska law protects many employees from discrimination based on protected classifications. An experienced Omaha employment discrimination lawyer can advise you of your rights as an employee and counsel you on how to proceed.
Before any workplace discrimination claim can be brought against a Nebraska employer in court, though, employees must exhaust their administrative remedies. The administrative process is handled by the Nebraska Equal Opportunity Commission. To file a claim with the “NEOC,” review their useful website at www.neoc.ne.gov and the guide to filing a claim.
Please understand that filing a charge of discrimination against your employer is a serious matter with consequences for both the employee and the employer, so review the “bases for filing” carefully to make sure the law protects you in your particular situation. A Nebraska employment law attorney can assess your case and determine if it is worth pursuing.
