CCRD and EEOC Employment Discrimination Claim Responses
Colorado Employment Attorney Helping Employers Respond to CCRD and EEOC Employment Discrimination Claims
A charge of discrimination by an employee can have many consequences that have both long and short-term ramifications. It can create friction within the company and damage your reputation within the community, as well as those with whom you do business. It is important to retain counsel who can defend you, as well as protect your reputation and your current and future business relationships.
When you are faced with an employment discrimination claim, contact The Law Offices of Ralph G. Torres , located in Denver, Colorado. Our experienced legal team can help you evaluate the claim and fight the charges. Our goal is to help minimize the impact of these lawsuits, as well as protect your business.
Our Role and Your Human Resources Department
You or your human resources department should never respond to an employee’s discrimination charge without reviewing it with legal counsel. Your reasons have to be complete, succinct, consistent and unchanging. Every verbal comment and written document produced can lock your company into a position that may not be defensible. Our employment law knowledge can prove an invaluable resource that can help you construct a comprehensive defense to the charges.
Many organizations provide inexpensive or prepaid legal services to respond to employee complaints and claims of discrimination. Representation service companies do not provide litigation defense and do not want to go to trial, as they do not have the expertise to do so. Unfortunately, if you sacrifice quality for economy, a poorly constructed response to an employee complaint could result in one employee lawsuit consuming your entire litigation budget.
HR departments should be a resource and risk management tool, but should not have the freedom to create legal errors, thereby opening the door to unnecessary lawsuits. We are here to help you make sure you are conducting your business in a legal and ethical matter by working with your human resources department to ensure your policies protect you from litigation, not foster it.
Do not rely solely on only your human resources department when you are facing an employee’s charge of discrimination. Contact our office today to see how we can help you.
