We will investigate what happened so we can secure the compensation you deserve. Nobody should have to deal with this type of discrimination.

What does workplace race discrimination look like?

When we talk about racial discrimination in the workplace, we should start with the definition provided by the US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission:

  • Treating someone, whether an applicant or an employee, unfavorably because of their race or because of characteristics associated with race.
  • When we talk about characteristics, we mean things like a person’s hair texture, skin color, or facial features.
  • Race discrimination can also include treating a person differently because they are married to or associated with a person of color.

We want to make it clear that it is illegal to discriminate against someone based on race when it comes to employment (including hiring, firing, job assignments, pay, promotions, layoff, training, fringe benefits, or any other terms of employment).

  • Both federal and state protections cover a wide range of types of discrimination.

Discrimination based on a person’s natural origin is also illegal, and an employer cannot discriminate based on a person’s citizenship or immigration status if that person is legally allowed to work in the US.

How often does workplace race discrimination occur?

Charges based on race are continually among the most commonly dealt with for the EEOC and state regulators.

  • For the latest reporting year, the EEOC brought over 24,000 charges against employers for racially discriminating in the workplace.

We also know that, in many cases, instances of alleged racial discrimination are not thoroughly investigated and that many cases go unreported. Many people are afraid of reporting instances of racial discrimination in the workplace out of fear of losing their jobs or facing backlash from supervisors or their fellow coworkers.

  • It is illegal for employers to retaliate against those who make complaints of race discrimination in the workplace.
