Concord Racial Discrimination Attorneys

In North Carolina, racial discrimination is illegal under both the U.S. Constitution and Title VII of the U.S. Code. According to these laws, employers may not take race into account when hiring, recruiting, deciding 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 power to conduct investigations of workplace discrimination, and employees must file their discrimination claims wih the EEOC prior to suing in a civil court. Discrimination based on race involves an employer who treats worker(s) differently than workers who are of another racial background.

The Concord plaintiff must also be able to show that the employer acted with intent to discriminate based on race in order to succeed in a racial discrimination claim. This intent is most often shown by proving that the employer preferentially treated those of other races and nationalities.

How Can a Concord Lawyer Help with My Claim?

In this area of litigation, procedural laws will vary considerably depending on where the claim is filed, and a Concord attorney will be knowledgeable of the requirements for your particular location. An experienced North Carolina lawyer will also guide you in filing your claim with the EEOC, as well as helping you obtain other forms of relief while your claim is being processed.
