It is appalling in this day and age to think that racial discrimination could occur in the workplace. Unfortunately, the reality is that racial discrimination does continue to happen. While federal and state laws protect employees from racial discrimination, it is the burden of the employee to file a complaint and force their employer to respect his or her rights. Our Atlanta area employment attorneys understand how intimidating it can be to file a complaint against an employer. Our lawyers assist workers throughout the Atlanta area in filing a complaint with the EEOC and ensuring that retaliation, if any, is also addressed. Do not ignore an instance of racial discrimination. Contact our office today.
Georgia employment attorneys advocating for workers who experience racial discrimination at work
Racial discrimination can come in any number of forms. Such forms can include an employer refusing to promote employees of a certain race, giving less desired assignments to certain racial groups, or refusing to hire certain racial groups. It may also come in the form of office policies; for example refusing to give time off to a person who observes certain religious holidays, or prohibiting an employee from dressing in certain ways that are important to their heritage. In some circumstances, employers do not realize that their behavior or policies are discriminatory and a resolution can be worked out through mediation or an advocating attorney. In other instances, a formal complaint must be made to the Atlanta EEOC Office.
