Henderson Racial Discrimination Attorneys

Find the right Racial Discrimination attorney in Henderson, NV

In Nevada, racial discrimination is banned under both the U.S. Constitution and Title VII of the U.S. Code. These laws prohibit employers from taking race into account in procedures for hiring, determining wage levels, or promotions and benefits.

What Must Be Proven in a Discrimination Claim?

The federal agency that is in charge of investigations of workplace discrimination is the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). Before taking matters to court, employees who have been discriminated against must file their claim with the EEOC. Race discrimination includes situations where an employer treats their worker differently from other workers who are of a different race or nationality.

To be successful in a racial discrimination claim, the Henderson employee must additionally prove that their employee had the required intent to discriminate based upon the person's race. This intent is most often proven by showing that the employer preferentially treated those of other races and nationalities.

How Can a Henderson Lawyer Help with My Claim?

Recorded statements about racial issues that were made by the employer can also be used in some cases to show intent. Depending on where you file your claim, the procedural laws will vary greatly, and so a Henderson lawyer will help familiarize you with the requirements for your district. An experienced Nevada lawyer will also help you in filing your claim with the EEOC, as well as helping you obtain other types of relief while your claim is being processed.
