Coconut Creek Racial Discrimination Attorneys

Find the right Racial Discrimination attorney in Coconut Creek, FL

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, 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 discrimination includes situations where an employer treats their employee differently from other employees who are of a different race or nationality.

To be successful in a racial discrimination claim, the Coconut Creek employee must additionally show that their employee had the required intent to discriminate based upon the person's race. Intent may be shown by demonstrating that the employer gave preferential treatment to people of other races or nationalities.

How Can a Coconut Creek Lawyer Help with My Claim?

In some instances, intent to discriminate may also be shown by using recorded statements by the employer regarding racial issues. Depending on where you file your claim, the procedural laws will vary considerably, and so a Coconut Creek lawyer will help familiarize you with the requirements for your district. A Florida lawyer may also assist you with filing a claim with the EEOC as well as guide you to other possible remedies while the case is pending.
