Naugatuck Racial Discrimination Attorneys

Find the right Racial Discrimination attorney in Naugatuck, CT

Racial discrimination is banned in Connecticut 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.

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. Discrimination based on race involves an employer who treats worker(s) differently than employees who are of another racial background.

In order to succeed on a claim for racial discrimination, the Naugatuck plaintiff must additionally 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 Naugatuck Lawyer Help with My Claim?

Recorded statements about racial issues that were made by the employer can also be used in some cases to show intent. Laws of procedure vary greatly in this area of law depending on where you file your claim, and local Naugatuck lawyers will be familiarized with the requirements of your geographical region. Additionally, a Connecticut attorney can help you when you file your claim with the EEOC, and they may be able to help you obtain other kinds of relief during the time period when your case is pending.
