Protecting Your Rights – Fight Race Discrimination

Race, Ethnicity, & National Origin Discrimination Attorney

Our nation is one of all races and creeds, and unless our ancestors are natives, we, or our parents, are immigrants. Our nation is one of all races and creeds, and unless our ancestors are natives, we, or our parents, are immigrants.

Both state and federal laws strictly forbid discrimination based on race, ethnicity, or national origin. This prohibition extends to all aspects of employment, encompassing hiring, terms and conditions, promotions, demotions, discipline, accommodation, and termination. Harassment on these grounds is also strictly prohibited, with the recognition that such behavior can create a toxic work environment.

Discrimination can manifest in various forms, including harassment that goes beyond casual jokes and offensive comments. It must reach the level of being “severe and pervasive,” requiring the affected individual to take action, such as filing a complaint. Some behaviors are inherently offensive, like displaying a noose in the workplace to intimidate an African-American employee.

In cases of employment discrimination, direct evidence, such as discriminatory comments in emails, recorded messages, or social media posts, is preferred but not mandatory. Courts acknowledge the difficulty of obtaining direct evidence, given the sophistication of employers in concealing illegal motives. Circumstantial evidence can suffice to demonstrate that discrimination likely motivated a termination.
