Racial discrimination is banned in Florida 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, determining 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 matters to court, employees who have been discriminated against must file their claim with the EEOC. Race discrimination includes situations where an employer treats their worker differently from other workers who are of a different race or nationality.

To be successful in a racial discrimination claim, the Cape Coral employee must additionally prove that their employee had the required intent to discriminate based upon the person's race. This intent is most often proven by showing that the employer preferentially treated those of other races and nationalities.

How Can a Cape Coral Lawyer Help with My Claim?

Depending on where you file your claim, the procedural laws will vary greatly, and so a Cape Coral lawyer will help familiarize you with the requirements for your district. A Florida 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.
