Under Federal and California State laws, it is illegal to discriminate on the basis of a person’s race or color of their skin. It is unlawful for an employer to discriminate in the “terms or conditions of employment”, which means anything related to someone’s job including their position, pay, title, hours, benefits, and anything that is a term or condition of employment.
If you think that you have been discriminated against because of your race or the color of your skin, get in touch with a California race discrimination attorney at The Nourmand Law Firm as soon as possible. We will evaluate your case and represent you in court so that you can file a lawsuit against your employer.
Examples of Race Discrimination
Employees and groups across all industries are vulnerable to becoming victims of race discrimination. Some of the most common examples of race discrimination include:
- Wrongful termination because of race
- Unfair job assignments
- Unfair hiring or promotion practices because of race
- Unequal access to training or promotion opportunities because of race
- Discrimination against a minority or because of an employee’s religion
- Covert and indirect harassment based on race
In 2004, the Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) of the United States received 27,696 complaints of racial discrimination in the workplace. Since the mid-1990s, the numbers have increased by approximately 125 percent. Not only is race discrimination and harassment illegal in the workplace, but it is also very cruel and can compromise an employee’s ability to perform their job, and future jobs, successfully.
