I was recently discharged for allegedly " excessive breaks"...I went on to file a complaint with the EEOC but found out I already have a case pending from July.....Im now under the impression that my firing may have been in regards to me filing a case with the EEOC in July ....now I dont have a case # or a investigators name ....all I know is when I called EEOC is they they say I already have a case pending ...I have been trying to contact the field office my EEOC case has been assigned to ...to find the status of my case ...therfore is it posible that by them investigating my original issue it may have caused me to be terminated if they contacted my employer ? ? ...plz advise because I have clearly not done anything to be terminated... ? Is there any course of legal action I can take and how do I get legal representation thats attractive to a Lawyer to fight a case I have no income except income won in Unemployment hearing recently ?
I already understand " wrongful " termination is a long shot even tho i have proof on camera that I can be proven innocent...however if this termination is posibbly tied to me contacting the EEOC prior to my dismisal as I suspect it to be ...can I seek help from a Lawyer and how do I approach one ?
