Race is another federally protected characteristic in workers across California often taken for granted by employers. Discriminating immutable features such as facial hair, skin color or other appearances which uniquely identify people of various lineages are litigable offenses taken seriously by JML Law, an aggressive Los Angeles racial discrimination attorney working for the people working in California.
Interchangeable with yet different than color, racial discrimination violates Title VII of the Civil Rights Act. Color references pigmentation, while race identifies with facial features, bone structure, eyes and hair. Ethnicity may closely identify with race, although ethnical features include nationality, ancestry, language and culture. All the above human characteristics are protected, and violations may merit civil action.
Suspect Racial Discrimination? Don’t Wait.
Identifying racial disparity probably wasn’t hard if you’ve been victimized. People called you racially-charged names, segregated you from other employees, worked you longer hours than others, paid you much less for equal skill, even fired you because your race didn’t meld with others at work. Once identified, racial discrimination breaks down communications with employers, not to mention makes victims like yourself feel socially inadequate. For your grief, we truly apologize.
JML Law steps up when employers breach Civil Rights Act statutes. No representation matters unless its unbiased and comprehensive from start to finish, which every client gets when retaining our services. Racially motivated harassment, segregation, even purposely putting job fairs where only one race will benefit are forms of intolerable discrimination victims may seek compensation for, and our Los Angeles racial discrimination attorney frequently gets.
Overt racial discrimination claims must start with EEOC and carry 180-day statute of limitations. JML Law may assist victims with claims and appeals process, and filings with local courts and state agencies. The EEOC may clear victims to leave work during this process, in which employers may not retaliate when granted. If any compensation does come out of civil due process, it’ll be awarded for pain and suffering along with loss of opportunity created by the employer who discriminated.
Witnesses to racial disparity are encouraged, where possible. More voices added to claims can only help improve chances, so victims should have names and numbers of those willing to testify on their behalf.
