Newton Racial Discrimination Attorneys

Find the right Racial Discrimination attorney in Newton, MA

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

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) is the federal agency in charge of investigating workplace discrimination, and employees discriminated against must file a claim with the EEOC before taking the issue to court. Race discrimination includes situations where an employer treats their employee differently from other employees who are of a different race or nationality.

To be able to prove a claim of racial discrimination, the Newton plaintiff further needs to prove that the employer had an intent to discriminate, and that the discriminatory action was based on race. The required intent may be shown by evidence that the employer rendered preferential treatment to workers who are of a different race or nationality than the plaintiff.

How Can a Newton Lawyer Help with My Claim?

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