What Types of Conduct are Prohibited in Arizona?

Racial discrimination is banned in Arizona under the U.S. constitution and Title VII of the U.S. Code. Employers may not take race into account according to these laws when hiring or recruiting workers, or when determining wages and promotion offers. The federal agency known as the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has the authority to conduct investigations of workplace discrimination, and employees must file their discrimination claims wih the EEOC prior to suing in a civil court.

What Must Be Proven in a Discrimination Claim?

The federal agency known as the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has the authority to conduct investigations of workplace discrimination, and employees must file their discrimination claims wih the EEOC prior to suing in a civil court. Race discrimination includes situations where an employer treats their worker differently from other workers who are of a different race or nationality.

The Douglas plaintiff must additionally be able to prove that the employer acted with intent to discriminate based on race in order to succeed in a racial discrimination claim. The required intent may be proven by evidence that the employer rendered preferential treatment to workers who are of a different race or nationality than the plaintiff.

How Can a Douglas Lawyer Help with My Claim?

In certain instances, intent to discriminate may also be shown by using recorded statements by the employer regarding racial issues. Procedural laws in this area of litigation vary greatly depending on where you file your claim, and a local Douglas lawyer will be familiar with requirements in your area. Should you decide to file your claim at the EEOC, a Arizona lawyer will be able to help you out, and they can also point you towards other types of remedies available to you while your claim is pending.
