How long do I have to make a claim?

| FAQs Jan 12, 2016

The time that you have to file a law suit is governed by a statute of limitations, determined under applicable federal or state law. In some cases, civil rights claims must be brought before an applicable fact-finding body within one hundred eighty days of the occurrence of an act of discrimination. Failure to bring a claim within an applicable statute of limitations period often constitutes grounds for an immediate dismissal of your claims.
