Filing a Racial Discrimination ClaimHave you been subject to discrimination at work because of your race? Watch this video to learn about filing a racial discrimination claim in California.
What should I do if I have been discriminated against at work because of my race?
Since the 1960s, under federal law, it’s been unlawful to discriminate on the basis of race. In California, it’s been unlawful to discriminate based off race, and national origin, color. Unfortunately, in this day and age, it still happens. In fact, recently, I think there’s been an uptake in which discrimination based off race or national origin is all of a sudden okay rather than making a march forward that we thought we’d been making for 30, 40 years, 50 years. It seems recently we’ve been taking a step back. If you feel that you’ve been subject to race discrimination, are hearing terms that you know or that you believe are race-based, that people are targeting you because of who you are, or if you’re African-American and you’re being passed over positions in which other non-African-Americans are being promoted into, understand that for 50 years, that conduct’s been unlawful. It’s important for you to understand your rights and talk to a law firm about what rights you may have.
