Racial discrimination is prohibited 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.

How Can a Carrollton Lawyer Help with My Claim?

Procedural laws in this area of litigation vary greatly depending on where you file your claim, and a local Carrollton lawyer will be familiar with requirements in your area. An experienced Georgia lawyer will also assist you in filing your claim with the EEOC, as well as helping you obtain other types of relief while your claim is being processed.
