Discrimination On The Basis Of Race
Racial discrimination happens when a person suffers some sort of adverse employment action due to his or her race. Such conduct occurs in many ways, which include:
- Being treated unfairly in the workplace, in the form of worse working hours or more difficult tasks
- Being denied employment or refused opportunities for career advancement
- Being terminated or reassigned to a different position because of race
These are just some of the potential issues that may allow an individual to bring a claim for racial discrimination. Our lawyers have handled several of these cases for workers in many occupations and are here to help you take appropriate action to protect your rights or career.
Age discrimination occurs when an individual is treated adversely due to his or her age. This may be passing over a person for a promotion due to age, refusing to hire someone because he or she is older than the typical candidate, or firing someone after they reach a certain age.
Determining if this conduct is potentially unlawful and gives rise to a cause of action can be extremely complicated. A deep analysis of the policies and procedures at a person’s place of employment may be necessary to learn if a pattern of behavior is present. Our experienced lawyers can review your case and explain the options that may be available to you.
