In Ohio, racial discrimination is banned under both the U.S. Constitution and Title VII of the U.S. Code. Employers are prohibited 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 conducted 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 differently than co-workers who are of a different race or nationality.

How Can a Lorain Lawyer Help with My Claim?

Laws of procedure vary greatly in this area of law depending on where you file your claim, and local Lorain lawyers will be familiarized with the requirements of your geographical region. A Ohio lawyer may also help you with filing a claim with the EEOC as well as guide you to other possible remedies while the case is pending.
