Los Angeles Race Discrimination Lawyer
Fighting for your rights in a discrimination case at work?
According to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, "race discrimination involves treating someone (an applicant or employee) unfavorably because he/she is of a certain race or because of personal characteristics associated with race," which also includes attributes like skin color, hair texture, facial features, etc. Frequently in an employment discrimination case based on race, the employee believes there was discrimination in denying a promotion, in a demotion or in a job firing while the employer cites a different, non-racial cause for the employment action. Under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, however, all individuals are protected from race discrimination in employment, whether it manifests in:
- Wrongful termination
- Refusing to interview and/or hire
- Workplace harassment
- Retaliation for filing a discrimination claim
- Denying a promotion
- Failing to provide benefits
If you believe that you have been targeted in unfair racial discrimination, it is your right to pursue legal action. Race discrimination is a civil rights violation and can have serious consequences for any employer found guilty of such. With the help of a qualified attorney, you may be able to better understand your rights and your options as an unfairly treated employee. For more information about race discrimination laws,
