Discriminated In The Workplace Due To Your Race? We Can Help
While it’s unlawful for an employer to discriminate based on race, ethnicity or color, it’s an unfortunately common occurrence. Whether this is done explicitly, by terminating or refusing to hire the employee, it can often occur in ways that are more difficult to detect. For example, employees may be denied promotions or training opportunities due to racial discrimination. In these situations, an experienced lawyer can help review the circumstances of your case and assist you in getting the restitution you may be entitled to.
At the Law Office of David F. Simons, we have assisted clients with job discrimination issues in Honolulu and across Hawaii. We understand the emotional and financial stresses associated with racial discrimination in the workplace, and for decades, we have worked to protect our clients and obtain restitution where possible.
The Specifics Of Racial Discrimination In The Workplace
Racial discrimination can occur against any racial group or perceived racial group. This includes African-Americans, Caucasians, Asians, Latinos and/or Hispanics, Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders, as well as multiethnic individuals.
Examples of racial discrimination at work can include:
- Racial jokes, slurs or otherwise offensive behavior
- Denial of advancement opportunities while employees of similar or lower skill set but different race are promoted
- Termination while employees in a similar position but of a different race are retained
Racial discrimination can take many forms. What is clear, however, is that it is illegal. We can work with you to determine if you have a solid case for moving forward with a suit.
