If you have a pending workplace discrimination claim and need immediate financial assistance, pre-settlement funding can help.
Section 1981 of the 1866 Civil Rights Act establishes and guarantees certain rights to all citizens of the United States, and these rights are to be protected against impairment by discrimination. The statute offers protection against discrimination in actions by the federal and state governments as well as private citizens.
Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 is a federal employment law that specifically prohibits employment discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, and national origin. Adverse employment actions like hiring or firing and hostile work environments based on one of these protected classes are examples of Title VII claims. Individuals alleging Title VII violations have the right to bring a civil claim in court against their employer for the recovery of compensatory and punitive damages.
Title VII requires an Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) charge to be filed before bringing a claim in court and establishes a cap on damages. The EEOC is an independent federal agency that promotes equal opportunity in employment. The function of the Commission is to prevent unlawful employment practices from occurring and to investigate charges filed against employers by or on behalf of an employee claiming to be aggrieved.
