Race Discrimination Attorneys Representing Employees In San Bernardino And Beyond
Despite the best efforts of individuals and government agencies, racial discrimination still exists in the workplace and other parts of life. These acts of discrimination can have a profound financial and emotional cost. Even when employers blatantly discriminate against employees on the basis of race, they will typically deny that they acted illegally. For these and other reasons, if you have been harmed by job discrimination based on your race, it is critical to have knowledgeable legal counsel on your side.
We are the employment law attorneys at SANFORD A. KASSEL, A Professional Law Corporation. From our offices based in San Bernardino, we serve employees across Southern California in all types of discrimination claims, including race discrimination claims. We will work tirelessly to vindicate our clients’ rights.
Your Rights Under The California Fair Employment And Housing Act
The California Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) prohibits discrimination or harassment on the basis of race, color or national origin. This means employers, employment agencies and unions cannot discriminate against job seekers, employees or independent contractors. This law also protects employees who witness such discrimination and report it.
Some of the acts prohibited under this law include:
Racially Charged Jokes
Loss Of Promotion
Undeserved Negative Performance Review
Racial discrimination in the workplace is barred under Federal law as well. When you work with our lawyers, you can be confident that we will thoughtfully consider all of your options in order to create the best possible claim for damages. Our objective in every case is to put our clients in the best possible position for success, whether a case is resolved in settlement, or goes all the way thru trial.
