We know that you never thought you would need a race discrimination attorney. However, workplace discrimination happens all the time, and it can have a devastating effect on the person who is being discriminated against. At the Azadian Law Group, PC, we understand these cases and will work to secure the compensation you deserve. Not only can workplace race discrimination affect your economic livelihood, but it can also affect your mental well-being as well. Today, we want to discuss what this looks like and how we can help.

How often does workplace discrimination occur?

While we would like to think that discrimination based on race no longer exists in the workplace, we know better. In fact, cases of workplace racial discrimination are amongst the most reported and investigated by federal and state authorities.

  • Workplace discrimination is illegal, but for the latest reporting year, the EEOC filed over 24,000 charges against employers in the United States based on racial discrimination.

We know that these numbers do not give us the whole picture and that cases of racial discrimination in the workplace are vastly underreported. Many people are afraid to come forward with their complaints because they are afraid of retaliation from coworkers and supervisors.

  • It is illegal for employers to retaliate against an employee for making race discrimination complaints.

Workplace discrimination comes in many forms

Racial discrimination in the workplace can be obvious, but it is often subtle behaviors that can be just as detrimental. The US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission tells us that this type of discrimination happens when a person is treated unfavorably due to their race or because of characteristics associated with their race (hair texture, skin tone, facial features).

  • It is also discrimination to treat someone differently because they are married to or associated with a person of a different race or ethnicity.

Employers cannot treat people differently in any way due to racial differences. This includes treatment when it comes to:

  • Hiring and firing decisions
  • Job assignments
  • Pay and benefits
  • Fringe benefits
  • Promotion opportunities
  • Other terms of employment

If a person is from another country and legally allowed to work in the US, an employer cannot discriminate against them based on their natural origin.
