Who is My Employer When A Temp Agency Has Placed Me In A Job Where I Had An Accident?

A temporary agency placed me in a job with one of their clients. Their client made me work long hours and did not pay me overtime and then to top it off, he said that I was "a lazy white person." Both the client and the temp agency are pointing the fingers at the other. Who do I turn to to deal with my overtime and discrimination claims?

The law says that where one employer sends you to do work for another employer, and both have the right to exercise certain powers of control over you, that you may be held to have two employers. In such cases, you may look to either or both employers for discrimination and overtime claims.
