What Is Racial Discrimination?
Sometimes racial discrimination is obvious, while in other cases it is subtle. If you have been denied a job that was given to a less-qualified person of another race, that may signal some form of unlawful discrimination. Other examples of racial discrimination are being denied a promotion or being singled out for disciplinary action while others were not. A company that knowingly allows racial harassment by other employees to occur in the workplace or retaliates against someone who complains about harassment may also be guilty of racial discrimination.
Asserting Your Rights Through The Legal Process
You have rights under federal and Kansas law. The first step is to file a complaint with the EEOC or the Kansas Human Rights Commission. They may refer the case to mediation or give you a right-to-sue letter.
The Law Firm of Michael M. Shultz can represent you throughout the entire legal process. The firm can evaluate your case, prepare your charge or complaint, and represent you in the mediation session or in court.
You Have Rights — Make Them Matter
Civil rights bills passed in 1866 and 1964 and numerous court decisions greatly expanded the concept of equal rights for all citizens, regardless of race. The Civil Rights Act of 1991 made it easier to use the court system to obtain relief in cases involving employment discrimination.
Attorney Michael Shultz uses the legal system to enforce the law. In taking your case, his goal will be to obtain the compensation and fairness you have been denied.
