Race Discrimination

Justice matters to our attorneys

The color of a person’s skin should not matter when it comes to companies deciding who to hire or promote from within. Unfortunately, racism still exists. And some businesses discriminate against prospective workers and employees on the basis of the color of their skin.

Workplace discrimination cases on the basis of race sound straightforward. But what makes these cases so complicated is many employers often deny doing anything wrong. Instead of admitting they didn’t hire someone because of their race, they often cite another reason.

But just because an employer says something doesn’t make it true. That’s why it’s critical that you have an experienced race discrimination lawyer on your side, defending your interests. That’s why you need Klie Law Offices in your corner.

Types of discrimination

The Civil Rights Act of 1964 outlawed racism in the workplace across the country. Even so, race discrimination continues to be a serious problem more than a half-century later. Examples of race discrimination in the workplace include:

  • Not hiring someone on the basis of their race
  • Not promoting employee
  • Demoting employee
  • Poor job review without just cause
  • Wrongful termination
  • Verbal threats
  • Offensive comments
  • Physical assault
