While you may think that humanity has developed enough to know that racial discrimination is not acceptable, there truth is that there is still very much a need for the state and federal laws protecting Woodland Hills workers against it. Despite being illegal – and unthinkable to most of us – employees in the region are frequently discriminated against due to their national origin, skin color, or facial hair and other features that can easily be identified as distinct to a particular race. When applying for employment, seeking progression and advancement opportunities. Should you find yourself in this difficult scenario, Title VII of the Civil Rights Act provides you with legal protection against all forms of racial discrimination.
However you have been discriminated against, and whatever the scenario in which your race has been used against you, a Woodland Hills racial discrimination attorney from JML Law can ensure you receive the justice, and the compensation, you deserve.
Common Types of Racial Discrimination in Woodland Hills
While most of us are more than aware than racial discrimination is commonplace both in and out of work, and affecting those within Woodland Hills and much further afield, proving an offense against you can be difficult. You may be able to prove that you were rejected for a certain vacancy, dismissed from your role, or unsuccessful in securing a promotion, transfer, or pay increase, but making it indisputable that this happened because of your race can be an arduous process. For this reason, it is strongly recommended that you seek legal representation from an experienced Woodland Hills racial discrimination attorney immediately.
Some of the racial discrimination cases we have successfully handled include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Denial of a pay increase which was awarded to a co-worker with equal qualifications but different race
- Advancement opportunities being offered only to co-workers of a certain race
- Racially-charged or motivated comments or jokes
- Racial segregation in the workplace
- Offering a lower rate of pay to new hires of certain races
- Termination or dismissal
