What should I do if I was a victim of racial discriminated or discrimination based on my ethnicity?


Racial DiscriminationOur nation’s and our state laws protect every employee on account of their race, on account of their national origin, or on account of their ethnicity. It doesn’t matter if your grandparents are from Sweden or South Africa or Columbia. The laws protect each and every one of us. If you believe or feel that you are being treated differently because of your ethnicity, your national origin, or your color, we at the Chavez Law Firm stand ready to provide you all the information you need for your potential claim. All you have to do is give us a call and we’ll set up an appointment to speak with you.

Examples of racial discrimination can include not receiving a promotion because of your race or ethnicity, being demoted or fired or passed up for an opportunity because of your race or ethnicity or just not being hired at all by the company you are interviewing with due to your ethnicity. These types of cases can be harder to prove since you never worked there but if you walked into an interview and notice they look at you like you aren’t who they expected to see, and you don’t get hired after a brief in person interview even though your phone interview was promising, it is natural to be suspicious of this.

Issues with hiring and racial discrimination are common. There has been research done to show that people who have names that are commonly white are more likely to be called into interview. That leaves people with uncommon or ethnic names dealing with the choice of continuing to face this discrimination or use a whiter name on applications. You don’t have to pick between these two things. If you are qualified for a position, it should not matter what your name is or what you look like. These companies sometimes will use an excuse to discriminate saying that you wouldn’t fit in with the current environment. This is coded language sometimes that says they don’t want anyone to ruin the white demographic they have.

You don’t have to stand by and let this happen. When you file a racial discrimination claim, not only are you calling out this company for their racist behavior, but you are potentially opening up possibilities for other people like yourself to hold other employers accountable as well. It is important to your justice to bring these cases because racial discrimination in the workplace is a violation of your constitutional rights.
