The Law Offices of Bowman and Associates, APC represents employees who have been discriminated against on the basis of race and color, in violation of Section 1981 of the Civil Rights Act of 1866; Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964; California State and City law, as well as under the laws of other states. We have represented employees and applicants for employment who have been discriminated against because of their race with regard to hiring, termination, promotion, compensation, job training, and other terms, conditions or privileges of employment.
Ethnic slurs, and offensive or derogatory racial comments deserve no protection in the workplace. When such conduct results in an intimidating, hostile or offensive work environment or otherwise interferes with an employee’s ability to perform the job, such conduct constitutes racial harassment and discrimination. The Law Office of Bowman and Associates, APC, is especially committed to asserting the rights of employees who have been affected by racial harassment.
We vigorously litigate claims in which an employer attempts to retaliate against an individual for exercising their rights under the anti-discrimination laws. Indeed, it is unlawful to retaliate against an individual for opposing employment practices that the individual in good faith believes are discriminatory on the basis of race. In addition, an employer may not retaliate against an individual for filing a discrimination charge, testifying, or participating in any way in an investigation, proceeding, or litigation involving race discrimination.
Race, color and national origin discrimination or harassment can take many forms, such as:
- Failure to hire, promote, or offer training because of race, color or national origin
- Pre-employment questions about race, color or national origin that determine who is hired
- Unrelated job requirements that exclude people of a certain race, color or national more than others
- Racial or ethnic slurs or derogatory comments that create a hostile workplace
- Work assignments based on color or race or ethnicity
- “English only” language rules and requirements in the workplace
Race discrimination at work is ugly, it is wrong, and it is illegal. Although race discrimination in the workplace has been illegal for many years now, we still encounter race discrimination cases where race is without a doubt a factor in termination, unfair hiring or promotion policies, unequal pay, unpaid overtime, unpaid wages, not given rest breaks or meal periods, or other workplace violations. Race discrimination can also play a role in sexual harassment or religious discrimination. We can help you with your race discrimination case because we know federal and state race discrimination laws and how to use them to prove your race discrimination case.
Our firm is committed to asserting the rights of individuals who are victims of racial harassment or discrimination in the workplace. If you believe that racial discrimination in the workplace has resulted in illegal treatment or damage to your livelihood, our legal team is committed to seeking results that meet your goals.
