La Crosse Racial Discrimination Attorneys

Find the right Racial Discrimination attorney in La Crosse, 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 determining 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 matter to court. Discrimination based on race involves an employer who treats worker(s) differently than employees who are of another racial background.

In order to succeed on a claim for racial discrimination, the La Crosse plaintiff must additionally prove that their employer intended to base the discrimination on race or nationality. This intent is most often proven by showing that the employer preferentially treated those of other races and nationalities.

How Can a La Crosse Lawyer Help with My Claim?

Additionally, sometimes statements that were recorded and made by the employer regarding racial issues can be used to establish intent. Depending on where you file your claim, the procedural laws will vary greatly, and so a La Crosse lawyer will help familiarize you with the requirements for your district. A Wisconsin 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.
