Racial Discrimination Lawyers
Are you a victim of racial discrimination?
Do you believe your employer fired, refused to hire, wouldn’t promote, or took some other action against you because of your race?
If so, you may be a victim of racial discrimination in the workplace.
Race discrimination occurs when an employer takes action against an employee because of their race. Adverse actions may include:
- Being fired
- Being suspended with or without pay
- Having your hours reduced
- Having your pay rate reduced
- Having your privileges revoked
- Being assigned more work than you are able to achieve within the scope of your job
If your race is a factor in the employer’s decision to take action against you, that action is illegal and we can help. In addition, fostering a racially hostile work environment is also against the law. A hostile work environment is created when offensive racial images or slurs are circulated or displayed, or when racial language is used throughout the workplace, and your employer encourages or tolerates that atmosphere. If your employer or fellow employees use racial slurs or tell racial jokes, you should discuss with your employer right away.
