Streamwood Racial Discrimination Attorneys

Find the right Racial Discrimination attorney in Streamwood, IL

Under the U.S. Constitution and Title VII of the U.S. Code, racial discrimination is prohibited in Illinois. According to these laws, employers may not take race into account when hiring, recruiting, determining pay or offering promotions.

What Must Be Proven in a Discrimination Claim?

Federal investigations of workplace discrimination are conducted by the agency called the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). Employees who are victims of discrimination are required to file their claim with the EEOC before filing suit in a court of law. To prove racial discrimination, an employer must treat an employee differently than co-workers who are of a different race or nationality.

To be successful in a racial discrimination claim, the Streamwood employee must further prove that their employee had the required intent to discriminate based upon the person's race. This intent is most often proven by showing that the employer preferentially treated those of other races and nationalities.

How Can a Streamwood Lawyer Help with My Claim?

Furthermore, sometimes statements that were recorded and made by the employer regarding racial issues can be used to show intent. Laws of procedure vary greatly in this area of law depending on where you file your claim, and local Streamwood lawyers will be familiarized with the requirements of your geographical region. An Illinois 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.
