You Must File A Lawsuit Within 90 Days of Receiving Right To Sue Letter

Have you filed a complaint or charge with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission? You may be aware that you have a certain statute of limitations period. However, the EEOC’s may issue you a right to sue letter which will require you to file a lawsuit within 90 days of receipt. If you do not file a lawsuit within the 90 days, then your lawsuit may be time barred.

You are not required by New Jersey employment law to file a complaint with the EEOC before filing a lawsuit. We typically recommend that you train an employment attorney first and then decide whether filing with the EEOC may be a worthwhile undertaking.
