Broken Arrow Racial Discrimination Attorneys

Find the right Racial Discrimination attorney in Broken Arrow, OK

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 Oklahoma. 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. Discrimination based on race involves an employer who treats worker(s) differently than employees who are of another racial background.

To be successful in a racial discrimination claim, the Broken Arrow 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 Broken Arrow Lawyer Help with My Claim?

In certain instances, intent to discriminate may also be shown by using recorded statements by the employer regarding racial issues. Laws governing the procedures in discrimination will vary considerably depending on where the claim is filed, and Broken Arrow attorneys will be able to help you with the requirements for your particular region. A good Oklahoma attorney will also be able to advise you should you decide to file with the EEOC, and they can guide you towards other potential remedies while your case is pending.
