Florida National Origin Discrimination Attorney

Florida’s workforce is more diverse now than ever, with native-born employees of all races working alongside immigrants from all over the globe. While it is reassuring to consider that our diversity is our strength, in many cases, the situation is not so pleasant. Misunderstandings and tensions involving race, religion, language or nationality can arise on the job, just as they do elsewhere in American society.

If you have been treated unfairly at work on the grounds of your national origin or nationality, contact our employment discrimination lawyers at the Law Office of William M. Julien, P.A., in Boynton Beach, for reliable advice about your options. We have decades of experience in employment law, and we offer free initial consultations to clients throughout Florida.

Who Faces National Origin Discrimination In Employment?

Discrimination on ethnic grounds of any kind in hiring, firing or job conditions is prohibited under both state and federal laws. We handle workplace national origin discrimination claims involving unfair treatment or retaliation on behalf of clients of any descent, including:

  • Haitian
  • Mexican
  • Dominican
  • Puerto Rican
  • Jamaican
  • Trinidadian
  • Vietnamese
  • African

We also serve the legal needs of workers from Africa, the Middle East, South Asia, East Asia, the former Soviet Union, Eastern Europe or anywhere in Latin America.

How National Origin Discrimination Manifests

While most of our cases involve either termination on the grounds of national origin or retaliation for having filed a discrimination complaint with the Florida Commission on Human Relations or the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, we also investigate and pursue claims of wage and hour violations, unpaid overtime or unfair denial of unemployment benefits.
