Racial discrimination in the workplace is not only unethical and unfair, it is also illegal. While racial discrimination at work can take various forms, it can end up causing employees significant emotional distress – regardless of whether the discriminatory actions were intentional.
The Los Angeles racial discrimination lawyers at Broslavsky & Weinman, LLP help victims stand up for their rights and hold the perpetrators accountable.
How Racial Discrimination Can Occur
When racial discrimination takes place at work, it generally involves the unfavorable treatment of a job applicant or employee due to his or her race, skin color/complexion, hair texture or other features associated with his or her race. Specifically, racial discrimination occurs when, due to someone’s race or racial feature(s), an employer:
Refuses to hire that person
Discriminates against him or her in terms of pay, benefits, job assignments, promotions and/or training
Demotes, lays off or fires that person
Forces that person to quit
Additionally, racial discrimination can occur when someone, due to his or her race or a racial feature, is subjected to harassment, including (but not limited to):
Derogatory statements or comments
Displays of racially offensive symbols or images
