In New Hampshire, racial discrimination is banned under both the U.S. Constitution and Title VII of the U.S. Code. Employers may not take race into account according to these laws when hiring or recruiting workers, or when deciding wages and promotion offers.
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.
To succeed on a claim of racial discrimination, the Plaistow plaintiff must additionally show that his employer acted with an intent to discriminate based on race or nationality. The employer's intent can often be shown by showing that other people of different races were treated preferentially.

Furthermore, in some circumstances, recorded employer statements regarding racial issues can be used to establish their intent to discriminate. Procedural laws in this area of litigation differentiate considerably depending on where you file your claim, and a local Plaistow lawyer will be familiar with requirements in your area. Should you decide to file your claim at the EEOC, a New Hampshire lawyer will be able to help you out, and they can also point you towards other forms of remedies available to you while your claim is pending.
