Jacksonville Race Discrimination Lawyer

Protect Your Rights Against Racial Discrimination

Race discrimination is one of the most widespread and harmful forms of discrimination that employees experience in the workplace. In 2011, charges of race discrimination comprised approximately 35% of all complaints to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). Victims of racial discrimination may experience severe and long-lasting damage to their careers and emotional health. Race discrimination may take the form of racial slurs, epithets, and intimidation tactics. In many cases, however, employers exhibit discrimination simply by favoring certain racial groups over others. Employers responsible for discrimination do not necessarily outwardly express their biased and prejudiced beliefs. Speak with Jacksonville Employment Lawyer Shands Wulbern today for assistance.

Federal and state laws prohibit discrimination on the basis of any type of race, including:

  • African-American
  • Hispanic
  • Caucasian
  • Asian
  • Arab
  • Native American

Results of Racial Discrimination

Racial discrimination may result in termination, harassment, hostile work environment, discipline, demotion, pay reduction, denied promotion, refusal to hire, and other adverse actions that materially alter terms and conditions of employment. Even if derogatory comments or acts directed toward an employee's race are not present, employees should be mindful of being subjected to different treatment than employees of other races. Differences in circumstances between employees may be based on an employer or supervisor's attitudes regarding race, rather than legitimate non-discriminatory reasons. Some of the differences that may be observed include:

  • Work assignments
  • Training
  • Performance evaluations
  • Raises
  • Bonuses
  • Write-ups

It is also unlawful for an employer to retaliate against an employee for lodging a complaint regarding race discrimination.
