Circle that date! EEOC filings have 300-day deadline

Remember: Pennsylvania employees have just 300 days to file an EEOC complaint.

Recent case: Robert Craig is deaf in one ear. He worked for Thomas Jefferson University as a research assistant and received excellent reviews.

However, he lost his job when grant funding for his position dried up. When he applied for other open positions, the university didn’t rehire him.

Then, more than 300 days later, he applied for a job at Temple University and learned that his former supervisor might have told Temple officials about his disability.

He sued Jefferson, alleging that he had not been rehired for discriminatory reasons. He argued he missed the 300-day deadline because he had no earlier inkling that disability discrimination might be the reason.

It didn’t work. The court said he had 300 days from being told he didn’t get a job to file, whether he suspected discrimination or not. (Craig v. Thomas Jefferson University, No. 08-4165, ED PA, 2009)
