Under the U.S. Constitution and Title VII of the U.S. Code, racial discrimination is banned in Indiana. 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?

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. To prove racial discrimination, an employer must treat an employee differently than co-workers who are of a different race or nationality.

To be able to prove a claim of racial discrimination, the Muncie plaintiff additionally needs to show that the employer had an intent to discriminate, and that the discriminatory action was based on race. 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 Muncie Lawyer Help with My Claim?

In some cases also, recorded statements made by the employer about 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 Muncie lawyers will be familiarized with the requirements of your geographical region. Should you decide to file your claim at the EEOC, an Indiana 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.
