Brunswick Racial Discrimination Attorneys

Find the right Racial Discrimination attorney in Brunswick, GA

Racial discrimination is illegal in Georgia 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 known as the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has the authority to conduct investigations of workplace discrimination, and employees must file their discrimination claims wih the EEOC prior to suing in a civil court. Race or nationality discrimination involves an employer treating you differently than those you work with that are of other races or nationalities.

The Brunswick plaintiff must also be able to prove that the employer acted with intent to discriminate based on race in order to succeed in a racial discrimination claim. The required intent may be proven by evidence that the employer rendered preferential treatment to workers who are of a different race or nationality than the plaintiff.

How Can a Brunswick Lawyer Help with My Claim?

In certain instances, intent to discriminate may also be established by using recorded statements by the employer regarding racial issues. Laws governing the procedures in discrimination will vary widely depending on where the claim is filed, and Brunswick attorneys will be able to help you with the requirements for your particular region. A Georgia 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.
