No, you should come see me first so that I can advise you on your EEOC claim. The EEOC employees are very good at their jobs but you should always come and see me before you go to the EEOC to make sure that your claim is properly filed. It is vitally important that we talk before you go the EEOC. In some cases going to the EEOC may hurt your chances if your claim is the type that does not need to be filed with the EEOC first. Only a competent employment lawyer can help you in making those decisions.
