Race Discrimination in the Workplace
Race discrimination is a degrading experience. When it occurs in the workplace, it is illegal under both state and federal law.
Employment race discrimination can take many different forms:
- Denial of promotion based on race or color
- Racial emails and pictures
- Disparities in pay, benefits or working conditions
- Unequal treatment of employees of different race or color
- Firing someone based on race or color
- Disparities in layoffs or downsizing
- Retaliation for filing a race discrimination claim or supporting the claim of another employee
Proving race discrimination can be difficult, for employers often offer pretexts for discriminatory behavior. For example, the employer may claim that a termination had nothing to do with race. However, if employees of color are terminated for conduct for which other employees only receive a warning, that is evidence of discrimination. Attorney William M. Julien is experienced in investigating your company’s practices to prove racial discrimination.
Racial Harassment in the Workplace
