Superior Racial Discrimination Attorneys

Find the right Racial Discrimination attorney in Superior, 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?

Before taking their discrimination claim to court, an employee must file their claim with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). The EEOC is the federal agency that has authority to investigate any claims of discrimination in the workplace. Race or nationality discrimination involves an employer treating you adversely than those you work with that are of other races or nationalities.

The Superior plaintiff must further be able to show that the employer acted with intent to discriminate based on race in order to succeed in a racial discrimination claim. The employer's intent can often be shown by showing that other people of different races were treated preferentially.

How Can a Superior Lawyer Help with My Claim?

Furthermore, sometimes statements that were recorded and made by the employer regarding racial issues can be used to show intent. In this area of litigation, procedural laws will vary considerably depending on where the claim is filed, and a Superior attorney will be knowledgeable of the requirements for your particular location. A Wisconsin lawyer may also assist you with filing a claim with the EEOC as well as guide you to other possible remedies while the case is pending.
