Both state and federal laws strictly prohibit employment discrimination based on race, ethnicity and national origin in addition to other protected classes. Having litigated thousands of employment cases, Whitehead Employment Law has the skills and experience to help individuals protect their rights against racial discrimination stemming from:
- Disparate treatment, or deliberately treating people differently because of their race. Slurs, “jokes” and other offensive behavior that creates a racially hostile work environment fall into this category.
- Disparate impact, or excluding members of a certain class or race from certain jobs or promotions. Company policies that adversely affect a particular minority group fall into this category.
If it’s determined that you are a victim of unlawful workplace discrimination, we can help you in multiple ways.
# 1 We will Make It Stop. If we are retained early enough, we can sometimes convince your employer to intervene on your behalf. The offending supervisor may be fired or relocated, or if you desire, you may be moved to a different location. We’ll help you through the process, and make sure your employer follows the law throughout.
#2 Negotiate an Exit. In many discrimination cases, our clients simply want “out.” We can often negotiate an exit package that will protect your reputation as a good employee, protect your access to unemployment benefits, negotiate potential severance options and your ability to get a new job.
#3 File a Discrimination Lawsuit. If your employer is not willing to cooperate and negotiate an out-of-court resolution, a lawsuit may be in your best interest. We will discuss with you all the risks and possible benefits involved so that you will know what to expect, and decide whether or not you want to sue your employer.
One thing you CAN be sure of, Whitehead Employment Law will continuously fight for your rights every step of the way.
