    I had my last job taken away because of my disability. I filed charges against them through the Iowa Cival Rights Commision. It takes a long time to go through them. I filed July of 05. It's passed the review and is investigations waiting to be checked out. I went through them because it's free. But it is taking so long, I wander if it would be better to hire a lawyer? But then I know I wouldn't get as much money, because he would take a big chunk.

    I don't even know how much I would be ellible for. Anyone else gone through this?

    Thanks, Halo

    Have you tried the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission?

    Sometimes, they handle discrimination charges better and faster than do state agencies.
