The United States was founded on the idea that every individual, regardless of race, color, or creed, must be treated equally. If you are being discriminated against due to any of these protected factors, it is not only a moral issue but also a legal issue. Racism has always been rampant across the nation, and although strides have been made, racism in the workplace is still happening. If you are being discriminated against, you should contact an Oakland racial discrimination attorney to review your case. We can let you know quickly if your case is strong enough to move forward.
