Fighting for Victims Against Race Discrimination

Under the law, you are protected from racial discrimination. Both Title VII and the California Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) prohibit discrimination against individuals because of one’s color and race.

According to FEHA, it is unlawful for an employer to do the following because of the individual's race or color (Cal. Gov. Code § 12940(a):

Refuse to hire

Discharge or terminate

Refuse to select or to bar or discharge an employee from a training program leading to employment

Discriminate against the person in compensation or in terms, conditions, or privileges of employment

The protections against race and color discrimination extend to persons associated with a member of the protected class. If you have been subjected to discrimination based on your race, it is important to understand your legal rights and work with a qualified attorney.

Racial Discrimination Takes Many Shapes

Some discrimination is open and obvious. However, most of the time, it is difficult to tell if an employer is discriminating against employees based on race. Do you have a new manager, and suddenly your shifts are reduced, or you’re being denied training opportunities, stripped of your duties, or excluded from meetings? Are you not being paid the same as someone doing the same job with the same experience and qualifications?

At Buchsbaum & Haag, our workplace discrimination attorneys have successfully represented thousands of employees whose workplace rights were violated. Those clients received awards or settlements worth more than $100 million in present value.
