Introduction

Sheer numbers indicate that it’s just a matter of time before a discrimination charge crosses your desk. Get the information you need NOW to be prepared.Your first reaction to receiving a charge of discrimination follows the stages of grief – shock, denial, anger. Some get depressed because they think they may get in trouble.  Then reality sets in and you reach the acceptance and action stages. The fact is discrimination charges are now a part of the risk of doing business. Proper preparation is the key to winning charges of discrimination. Properly responding to a Charge of Discrimination is never fun.
