Our Law Firm Helps Victims of Workplace Racial Discrimination
Ohio attorneys who take a stand against discrimination
Businesses cannot discriminate against someone based on their race or the color of their skin. The Civil Rights Act of 1964 formally made discrimination on the basis of specific classes illegal across the country. Despite that, some companies continue to discriminate on the basis of race.
Our racial discrimination attorneys at Nilges Draher LLC can fight to protect your rights in the workplace. Odds are, your employer will have an expensive legal team working to protect its interests. You need to be sure you have someone protecting your interests. We can help.
Our experienced legal team wants to learn more about your case firsthand from you. We want you to tell us in your own words exactly what happened. That way, we can explain all the legal options available to you and decide which one makes the most sense for your particular circumstances.
What happened to you?
Racial discrimination can take many different forms - from blatant racist behavior to more subtle forms of racism. We can help you if you were a victim of any of these forms of racial discrimination in the workplace:
- Failing to hire an individual because of race.
- Failing to promote someone because of race.
- Receiving no raise or a smaller raise than Caucasian colleagues.
- An individual being passed over for promotion in favor of a less experienced Caucasian colleague.
- An individual being given a less desirable schedule than a less experienced Caucasian colleague.
There are many other forms of racial discrimination in the workplace. These are just a few examples. And each one requires a detailed investigation. That's why it's critical that you contact our law firm if you believe you were a victim of racial discrimination on the job. We can help.
How we can help
Chances are your employer will insist that there are legitimate reasons for its discriminatory behavior. Your employer will use any excuse to justify the discrimination. They might claim that a white colleague was a harder worker or had better credentials than you, even if you know that's not the case.
You might think all you have to do is report such illegal activity to the Ohio Civil Rights Commission (OCRC) or the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). But it's important to realize that these government agencies have a different agenda. They're often focused on determining if the company violated the law, not whether you are fairly compensated for the discriminatory conduct you have been subjected to. That's our job.
Ohio state and federal laws governing race discrimination are complex, and building strong cases requires a lot of effort. We understand how to find the evidence needed to prove that you were unlawfully discriminated against because of your race. And we can help you move forward.
The sooner you take action, the better. Strict deadlines called the statute of limitations require you to file your claim within a certain period of time. For example, federal anti-discrimination laws have a 300-day deadline. And the sooner you contact a racial discrimination attorney, the easier it will be to find the evidence needed.
