Daily news reports and social media posts confirm that racism is still alive and well in our country. While racist police brutality and educational inequality are a well-documented part of life for millions of Americans, race-based employment discrimination is a less popular topic.
One of the most egregious forms of race discrimination in the workplace is wrongful termination related to race. It’s not just unfair, unconstitutional or illegal — it’s wrong. And you may have the basis for an employment lawsuit.
Talk to the attorneys of California Employment Counsel, APC, if you have been discriminated against. We concentrate our practice on representing employees who have been treated illegally by their employers. We are based in Orange County, but we serve clients throughout the state.
Generally, your employer will not admit that race played a part in a hiring or firing decision, but you may be able to prove that what happened to you was racially motivated. It is possible to sue for financial damages and, in some cases, get your job back. That’s why it’s critical to work with an experienced attorney to explore the possibilities. Our firm is here to help.
Losing your job can be a traumatic experience, especially if you were mistreated by your employer. If you have personal questions about racial discrimination and wrongful termination, talk to a lawyer with the knowledge to answer them.
