Cleveland Race Discrimination Attorneys
Protecting the Rights of People Who Have Experienced Racial Discrimination
Have you experienced discrimination, harassment, retaliation, or other mistreatment at work because of your race or the color of your skin?
If so, your rights were violated. You have a right to be in a workplace free from discrimination and harassment.
Unfortunately, racism and discriminatory practices continue to plague our nation’s workplaces. Unlawful employment discrimination might be obvious—like when a co-worker, manager, or supervisor makes offensive comments, or when your employer applies workplace policies differently based on race. It might also be more subtle, such as workplace policies or practices that appear neutral on the surface but in practice have the effect of discriminating based on race.
Both Ohio and federal laws prohibit discrimination based on race, color, personal characteristics associated with race, or association with a person of a certain race (for instance, people in an interracial marriage or with a biracial child).
It is illegal for employers to make employment decisions—including hiring, firing, pay, promotions, demotions, layoffs, job assignments, training, benefits, or any other aspect of employment—based on race.
If you believe that you’ve been subjected to race discrimination or harassment—whether you were passed over for a new job or have experienced mistreatment at your current job—it’s important to speak to an experienced employment discrimination attorney as soon as possible.
