Eau Claire Racial Discrimination Attorneys

Find the right Racial Discrimination attorney in Eau Claire, WI

The U.S. Constitution and Title VII of the U.S. Code both make racial discrimination illegal in the state of Wisconsin. Employers may not take race into account according to these laws when hiring or recruiting workers, or when deciding wages and promotion offers.

What Must Be Proven in a Discrimination Claim?

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) is the federal agency in charge of investigating workplace discrimination, and employees discriminated against must file a claim with the EEOC before taking the issue to court. Race discrimination includes situations where an employer treats their employee differently from other employees who are of a different race or nationality.

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

How Can an Eau Claire Lawyer Help with My Claim?

Furthermore, in some circumstances, recorded employer statements regarding racial issues can be used to show their intent to discriminate. Laws of procedure vary considerably in this area of law depending on where you file your claim, and local Eau Claire lawyers will be familiarized with the requirements of your geographical region. Should you decide to file your claim at the EEOC, a Wisconsin 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.
