Examples of Race Discrimination in the Workplace?

What Are My Rights When it Comes to Race Discrimination at Work?

Race discrimination occurs when an applicant or employee is treated unfavorably because they are of a certain race or because they have personal characteristics associated with a specific race. Under the California Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA), it is illegal for employers to make decisions against employees or job applicants based on race or ethnicity. This law applies to employer decisions like job offers, promotions, awarding benefits, salary or wage increases, and job termination.

If you have experienced discrimination at work because of your race, the color of your skin or complexion, hair color or texture, or any other physical feature, then you may be able to pursue compensation for the injustices you endured. We have helped clients recover compensation for financial losses, emotional pain and mental suffering, and future monetary needs.
