Which of the forms US-000286 or US-000267 should I use to answer a discrimination complaint?
Unfortunately, we cannot advise you to use one particular form over another that addresses the same matter. The answer to your question depends on the circumstances upon which you base your discrimination claim and the remedies you are seeking. The form US-000286 is a multi-state form used by a plantiff who is claiming discrimination on the basis of race or physical disability/handicap and is seeking actual, compensatory, liquidated and punitive damages, as well as lost salary and benefits, future lost salary and benefits and compensatory damages for emotional pain and suffering. This form is used by a plaintiff who is seeking a jury trial. You can modify this fact-specific form to meet your particular needs and circumstances. The form US-000267 is a multi-state general form that is used by a plaintiff who is seeking special and compensatory damages under the Family Leave Act, the Americans with Disability Act and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act.
