The law prohibits discrimination at work because of a person’s race or national origin. Your national origin is defined as the country you or your parents came from. In the eyes of the law, your race is dependent on how you perceive yourself.
At Lawless, Lawless & McGrath, we help clients who have suffered discrimination because of their race or national origin in a variety of ways, including:
- Wrongful termination
- Retaliatory termination
- Denial of a promotion
- Denial of a job
You should also not have to suffer verbal abuse or harassment at work. The use of racial epithets is reprehensible. If you have suffered pervasive harassment at work, while co-workers of a different race are treated differently, you might have a claim for harassment.
Helping Hispanic, African, African-American and Asian Clients
We represent clients with Hispanic names, appearances and those with family from Central or South America, Mexico or Cuba. If you are Hispanic or Latino and you feel you have been treated unfairly at work because of this, you might have a claim against your employer. We have also successfully represented Asian, African, African-American and clients of all races and nationalities.
Lodging Complaints at Work
Discrimination or harassment because of your race or national origin is not acceptable and you should report the behavior immediately.
