Discovering that you lost a job due to your race or that you were not hired due to your race is challenging for any individual. Racial discrimination is still a big problem, regardless of efforts to obtain equality within the United States. When you have been the victim of racial discrimination, you may be entitled to compensation for the loss of income and the challenges associated with the situation, but you need to retain one of our top racial discrimination lawyers immediately.
What is Racial Discrimination?
Before you can determine if it is appropriate to seek a racial discrimination lawyer, it is important to identify situations that are considered racial discrimination. If you were fired after racial comments, then it may relate to your ancestral background. On the other hand, if you were fired after being late on several occasions, then your employer may have clear reasons for the actions.
Racial discrimination is any situation where your physical features and the color of your skin have resulted in the loss of a job, a refusal to allow you into a building or any other action taken by another individual who is representing a company at the time.
It is not always easy to prove that racial discrimination took place because an employer or a potential employer may suggest that other reasons resulted in the loss of a job. For example, an employer may say that you were late consistently or that you did not perform your work adequately, which is the reason for the termination. In the case of looking for a position, a potential employer may suggest that you were not qualified for the position based on your resume and interview.
Due to the potential challenges, proving that discrimination took place is not always easy, but that is why you need to retain one of our top racial discrimination attorneys.
Things Our Racial Discrimination Lawyers Look at:
- Witness statements of racial comments or inappropriate behavior from an employer
- Proof regarding the hours that you worked, such as a time-sheet
- Documents that show adequate or acceptable work ethics
- Witness statements regarding your behavior and character at work
- Proof that you were more qualified for the job based on education or grades
Witness statements are particularly powerful if you were working a job and they have positive statements regarding your work ethic and the type of work that you did on the job.
Working with a Racial Discrimination Attorney
An experienced racial discrimination attorney can help determine the best options to prove that you were fired due to your race or that an employer refused to hire you for the same reasons. Based on the details that you provide during a consultation and the facts of the case, a racial discrimination lawyer will offer specific advice and details regarding your options.
It is hard when people look at your racial background rather than your experience, accomplishments and expertise. That is where an attorney can help you move forward after facing a situation associated with racial discrimination.
