Find the right Racial Discrimination attorney in North Port, 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, determining wage levels, or promotions and benefits.

What Must Be Proven in a Discrimination Claim?

Before taking their discrimination claim to court, an employee must file their claim with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). The EEOC is the federal agency which has authority to investigate any claims of discrimination in the workplace. To prove racial discrimination, an employer must treat an employee differently than co-workers who are of a different race or nationality.

To succeed on a claim of racial discrimination, the North Port plaintiff must additionally prove that his employer acted with an intent to discriminate based on race or nationality. Proof of an employer's intent to discriminate can be shown if they have preferentially treated workers of different races than the plaintiff.

How Can a North Port Lawyer Help with My Claim?

Additionally, in some circumstances, recorded employer statements regarding racial issues can be used to establish their intent to discriminate. Laws of procedure vary greatly in this area of law depending on where you file your claim, and local North Port lawyers will be familiarized with the requirements of your geographical region. Should you decide to file your claim at the EEOC, a Florida lawyer will be able to help you out, and they can also point you towards other types of remedies available to you while your claim is pending.
