Lakewood Racial Discrimination Attorneys

In Ohio, racial discrimination is illegal under both the U.S. Constitution and Title VII of the U.S. Code. Employers are barred according to theses laws from using race as a basis for hiring, recruitment, setting wage levels, or granting promotions.

What Must Be Proven in a Discrimination Claim?

Federal investigations of workplace discrimination are done by the agency called the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). Employees who are victims of discrimination are required to file their claim with the EEOC before filing suit in a court of law. To prove racial discrimination, an employer must treat an employee adversely than co-workers who are of a different race or nationality.

To succeed on a claim of racial discrimination, the Lakewood plaintiff must also 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.

In this area of litigation, procedural laws will vary considerably depending on where the claim is filed, and a Lakewood attorney will be knowledgeable of the requirements for your particular location. An experienced Ohio 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.
