Have you been the victim of workplace discrimination based on your race or national origin? This type of discrimination is a violation of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. That act gives you the right to take action against your employer. The Houston racial discrimination lawyers at Kennard Law, P.C., are ready to stand by your side.
Forms Of Race Discrimination In The Workplace
Blatant racism in the workplace still exists. There are still employees who are the target of racial epithets from co-workers and supervisors, and these employees have the right to seek compensation for the mistreatment they have encountered. However, much of the race discrimination that occurs in the workplace today is more subtle.
For example, an employee may be given the most undesirable tasks for no other reason than his or her race. Similarly, an employee may receive more intense scrutiny and disciplinary action because of his or her race, ultimately leading to wrongful termination. Cases of employees being denied promotions or raises due to their race are also far too common.
