Racial discrimination is illegal in Connecticut under the U.S. constitution and Title VII of the U.S. Code. These laws prohibit employers from taking race into account in procedures for hiring, deciding wage levels, or promotions and benefits.

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 issues to court, employees that have been discriminated against must file their claim with the EEOC. Race or nationality discrimination involves an employer treating you adversely than those you work with that are of other races or nationalities.

To be able to prove a claim of racial discrimination, the Southington plaintiff also needs to prove that the employer had an intent to discriminate, and that the discriminatory action was based on race.

How Can a Southington Lawyer Help with My Claim?

Laws of procedure vary considerably in this area of law depending on where you file your claim, and local Southington lawyers will be familiarized with the requirements of your geographical region. Should you decide to file your claim at the EEOC, a Connecticut lawyer will be able to help you out, and they can also point you towards other forms of remedies available to you while your claim is pending.
