Why Human resouces will not do anything about my continuous harrassment/age discrimination?

I filedd a grievance that was not investigated properly, reported to EEOC in 9/10 for being retaliated against. I was offered an option to leave it open, or they could investigate. I decided to leave it open. Since, I filed another grievance and was forced to return to EEOC 3/11 and currently they have contacted my employer. While I await a response from EEOC, I am continuing to be harrassed. Have contacted HR on this, I have asked questions and receiving no responses. I am totally stressed out and trying to hold my composure. What can I do?

Based on the information given, it is difficult to tell if the harassment and retaliation you are receiving is actually protected under the Civil Rights Act. Without knowing the specifics, I can only advise that you consult with an attorney experienced in employment discrimination cases, and if your employer's harassment is in violation of the law, you can usually obtain a right to sue upon request from EEOC if you feel the process is going nowhere.

Further, there may be other causes of action that are completely unrelated to anything the EEOC handles, but without specifics, I have no way of giving you an informed opinion.
