Florida Race Discrimination Employment Attorney
Despite the long struggle for racial equality in this country, racial discrimination remains a very real problem in many aspects of American life. When it comes to discrimination in the workplace, state and federal laws make it very clear that racial discrimination is illegal. If you have been the victim of illegal racial employment discrimination, Florida race discrimination employment attorney, Robert S. Norell, can help you put an immediate stop to the unlawful treatment and see that you are fully compensated for the harm done to you.
Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, as well as Florida employment laws, prohibit discrimination on the basis of a person’s race or color. Beyond just skin color, any factors related to a person’s race, from the texture of their hair to their facial features, are protected personal characteristics. Treating an employee differently based on any of these factors associated with race is illegal, and employers are liable to their employees for harm they have caused. The law also prohibits racial harassment such as racial slurs and offensive remarks that are so severe or persistent that they create a hostile or offensive work environment.
If you have been harassed at work, demoted or terminated because of your race, denied a promotion or favorable assignment, or subjected to any unfavorable job treatment because of your race or color, Florida race discrimination attorney, Robert S. Norell, can help right that wrong – whether it be reinstatement with back pay, promotion to the correct position, or financial compensation for the harm done to you.
