Port Orange Racial Discrimination Attorneys

Find the right Racial Discrimination attorney in Port Orange, FL

Racial discrimination is illegal 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?

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 that has authority to investigate any claims of discrimination in the workplace. To prove racial discrimination, an employer must treat an employee adversely than co-workers who are of a different race or nationality.

To be successful in a racial discrimination claim, the Port Orange employee must also show that their employee had the required intent to discriminate based upon the person's race. This intent is most often shown by proving that the employer preferentially treated those of other races and nationalities.

How Can a Port Orange Lawyer Help with My Claim?

Also, sometimes statements that were recorded and made by the employer regarding racial issues can be used to prove intent. Laws of procedure vary considerably in this area of law depending on where you file your claim, and local Port Orange lawyers will be familiarized with the requirements of your geographical region. 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.
