Camden Racial Discrimination Attorneys

Find the right Racial Discrimination attorney in Camden, NJ

In New Jersey, 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 determining 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 authority 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 employees who are of another racial background.

In order to succeed on a claim for racial discrimination, the Camden plaintiff must additionally prove that their employer intended to base the discrimination on race or nationality. 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 Camden 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 Camden lawyers will be familiarized with the requirements of your geographical region. Should you decide to file your claim at the EEOC, a New Jersey 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.
