Springfield Racial Discrimination Attorneys

Find the right Racial Discrimination attorney in Springfield, OH

Under the U.S. Constitution, as well as Title VII of the U.S. Code, it is banned to discriminate on the basis of race in the state of Ohio. According to these laws, employers may not take race into account when hiring, recruiting, determining pay or offering promotions.

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 able to prove a claim of racial discrimination, the Springfield plaintiff additionally needs to show that the employer had an intent to discriminate, and that the discriminatory action was based on race. Intent may be proved by demonstrating that the employer gave preferential treatment to people of other races or nationalities.

How Can a Springfield 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 Springfield lawyers will be familiarized with the requirements of your geographical region. Additionally, a Ohio attorney can help you when you file your claim with the EEOC, and they may be able to help you obtain other kinds of relief during the time period when your case is pending.
