Employer representing themselves

What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? Indiana I filed a claim with the EEOC and got my right to sue letter pre trial hearing was set then rescheduled due to my former employer firing their attorney and are going to represent themselves!! Is this normal?

Unusual, yes and maybe not legally possible. What is the corporate structure of the business; Corp, llc, partnership, etc. or is it none?

If they have less than 15 employees they do not fall under the EEOC's jurisdiction, so just exactly what kind of right to sue letter did you get?

If you have an attorney, any questions you have can be directed to him/her. Your attorney is in a better position to answer questions about your case than anyone on this forum as your attorney has access to all of the facts.

Good luck in court.

Small business inc. less than 15 employees! Was just nothing I have ever heard of
If the business is just a sole proprietorship then the owner may represent himself/herself if the owner chooses. It might not be a very smart way for the owner to go, but the owner has that right. If the business is organized as a corporation or LLC then generally the business must be represented by an attorney in court.
