Los Angeles Race Discrimination Lawyer

Race or color discrimination in the workplace is a rampant problem in the U.S. today. Despite the state’s strict employment laws and myriad worker rights, California is no exception. Discriminatory employers may subject workers to unfair, unlawful, and adverse employment actions simply because of their race. It is up to victims to take a stand against employers guilty of race discrimination. You could be eligible for compensation as a victim of discrimination in Los Angeles.

How Can Our Los Angeles Race Discrimination Attorneys Help?

The Law Office of Omid Nosrati functions on the belief that each and every employee deserves equal opportunities in employment. There are no exceptions. We believe deeply in the state and federal laws that are in place to help protect the rights of all employees, regardless of race, color, sex, gender, religion, or disability. Our firm works hard to uphold the law and may be able to help you fight against discrimination. Hiring our experienced Los Angeles discrimination lawyers puts you with an award-winning attorney.

Litigating race discrimination matters requires specific, detailed knowledge of the law and how to apply the facts of each case to meet the technical legal requirements in this area. We will conduct a thorough investigation in order to find evidence of discrimination. For instance, we may find direct evidence of discrimination, such as derogatory comments by a supervisor. Our investigation could also find circumstantial evidence, such as evidence that you were performing your job satisfactorily but suffered an adverse employment action anyway. In many cases, we might find some combination of direct or circumstantial evidence. In any event, we will work hard to present a strong case based on the evidence.

We work closely with all of our clients in pursuit of their racial discrimination cases. This personalized attention allows us to tailor each case to the specific needs and goals of each client. Whether the client is best served by negotiated settlement or by trial, our firm helps clients understand all of their available legal options so they can choose from those options intelligently and confidently.

What Does Race Discrimination Look Like?

Race discrimination can be overt or subtle. It can come in the form of an employer only hiring people of one race or refusing to hire people of a certain race or color. It can also take the shape of excluding an employee from workplace opportunities, projects, or activities. Race discrimination can make it impossible for qualified applicants to get jobs or move up within a company. It can also cause significant harms such as lost wages, loss of career opportunities, and mental or emotional suffering. Examples of race/color discrimination include:

  • Treating someone differently because of race or characteristics associated with race, including culture, physical appearance, linguistics, and skin color.
  • Refusing to hire a qualified applicant simply because of his or her race or complexion.
  • Treating someone unfavorably because he or she is married or associated with someone of a certain race or color.
  • Making employment decisions such as hiring, firing, training, promotions, job assignments, pay, compensation, and benefits based on race.
  • Making decisions based on assumptions or stereotypes surrounding a racial group.
  • Creating policies that deal with people of certain races unfairly, and that are unnecessary to the operation of the business.
  • Paying two equally qualified employees different wages based on race.
  • Harassment on the basis of race such as racial slurs, ethnic epithets, foul language, rude comments, uncomfortable jokes, or other race-based behaviors that make a workplace feel hostile or threatening to the victim.

There are endless examples of race-related employment discrimination. The key thing to remember is that if your employer subjects you to any type of adverse employment action based on your race, it is discrimination. As soon as you suspect discrimination in any shape or form, come to the lawyers at The Law Office of Omid Nosrati for assistance.
