Redmond Racial Discrimination Attorneys

Find the right Racial Discrimination attorney in Redmond, WA

The U.S. Constitution and Title VII of the U.S. Code both make racial discrimination illegal in the state of Washington. According to these laws, employers may not take race into account when hiring, recruiting, deciding pay or offering 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. Race discrimination includes situations where an employer treats their employee differently from other employees who are of a different race or nationality.

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

How Can a Redmond Lawyer Help with My Claim?

Recorded statements about racial issues that were made by the employer can also be used in some cases to prove intent. Laws of procedure vary considerably in this area of law depending on where you file your claim, and local Redmond lawyers will be familiarized with the requirements of your geographical region. Should you decide to file your claim at the EEOC, a Washington lawyer will be able to help you out, and they can also point you towards other forms of remedies available to you while your claim is pending.
