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

Before taking their discrimination claim to court, an employee must file their claim with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). The EEOC is the federal agency that has authority to investigate any claims of discrimination in the workplace. Race or nationality discrimination involves an employer treating you adversely than those you work with that are of other races or nationalities.

To be successful in a racial discrimination claim, the Germantown employee must also show that their employee had the required intent to discriminate based upon the person's race. Intent may be shown by demonstrating that the employer gave preferential treatment to people of other races or nationalities.

How Can a Germantown Lawyer Help with My Claim?

In some instances, intent to discriminate may also be established by using recorded statements by the employer regarding racial issues. Procedural laws in this area of litigation differentiate considerably depending on where you file your claim, and a local Germantown lawyer will be familiar with requirements in your area. A good Maryland attorney will also be able to assist you should you decide to file with the EEOC, and they can guide you towards other potential remedies while your case is pending.
