Brentwood Racial Discrimination Attorneys
What Types of Conduct are Prohibited in California?
Racial discrimination is prohibited in California under the U.S. constitution and Title VII of the U.S. Code. According to such laws, an employer cannot use race as the basis for making decisions regarding hiring, recruitment, wage levels, or promotion opportunities. The federal agency that is in charge of investigations of workplace discrimination is the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). Before taking matters to court, employees who have been discriminated against must file their claim with the EEOC.
What Must Be Proven in a Discrimination Claim?
The federal agency that is in charge of investigations of workplace discrimination is the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). Before taking matters to court, employees who have been discriminated against must file their claim with the EEOC. Race or nationality discrimination involves an employer treating you differently than those you work with that are of other races or nationalities.
In order to succeed on a claim for racial discrimination, the Brentwood plaintiff must further prove that their employer intended to base the discrimination on race or nationality. 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 Brentwood Lawyer Help with My Claim?
Recorded statements about racial issues that were made by the employer can also be used in some cases to prove intent. Laws governing the procedures in discrimination will vary greatly depending on where the claim is filed, and Brentwood attorneys will be able to help you with the requirements for your particular region. A California lawyer may also help you with filing a claim with the EEOC as well as guide you to other possible remedies while the case is pending.
