National Origin Discrimination
You Should Be Judged On Your Ability, Not Your Nationality
The South Florida workplace 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 true 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. Contact an employment discrimination lawyer at the Law Office of William M. Julien, P.A., in Boynton Beach for reliable advice about your options if you have been treated unfairly at work on the grounds of your national origin or nationality.
Who Gets Discriminated Against?
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 people from the following backgrounds:
- Puerto Rican
We also serve the legal needs of workers from Africa, the Middle East, South Asia, East Asia, the former Soviet Union and 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 Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, we also investigate and pursue claims of wage and hour violations, unpaid overtime or unfair denial of unemployment benefits.
