Racial discrimination in the workplace persists, more than 50 years after passage of the 1964 Civil Rights Act. As a victim of discrimination on the basis of race, you have rights. You can seek justice and compensation for your losses and suffering.
At the Law Offices of Reisner & King LLP, we help victims of race discrimination reclaim their dignity. We work tirelessly to obtain compensation and justice for people who have suffered discrimination on account of their race, ethnicity or place of national origin.
If you have suffered racial discrimination or harassment in the workplace, call us at 818-981-0901. In a free consultation, one of our attorneys can review your situation and explain your legal options.
Compensation in a racial discrimination case can include lost past and future wages, benefits, and attorney fees, as well as noneconomic losses such as emotional suffering. In some cases, punitive damages may be awarded.
Race Discrimination In Hiring, Promotion And Termination
You may have been unfairly screened during the hiring process because of your race and denied a job. You may have been denied opportunities for advancement because of the color of your skin. A supervisor may have given you the dirtiest job in the plant, hoping that you would quit.
These are forms of illegal race discrimination. But it’s not enough merely to claim you were discriminated against because of your race. That must be proven by collecting and presenting evidence to the court or in administrative venues.
At Reisner & King, our lawyers have the experience, knowledge and resources to build strong cases for our clients. If we believe that your case has merit, we will work diligently to build a strong and successful case for you.
The march toward justice starts with the first step. Get legal help today.
Harassment And Hostile Work Environments
Some people are the targets of racially tinged taunts, discriminatory comments, vicious practical jokes and harassment. If you suffer from these types of behaviors, you should file a complaint with your Human Resources department. If management fails to intervene and the behavior continues, you may have a racial discrimination claim. Reisner & King can represent you, seeking compensation and justice.
