IDAHO RACE DISCRIMINATION LAWYER
30+ Years Experience
Honest & Transparent
Integrity Above All
While racial discrimination in the workplace is far less common than it was 50 to 75 years ago, it nonetheless still exists and remains a condition that society will not tolerate. As we spend so much of our lives at our places of employment, the perception of racial discrimination in the workplace is a particularly unwanted and unpleasant experience. Fortunately, both federal and Idaho State laws provide protection against racial discrimination. No matter your race, you are fully protected by such laws.
Today, racial discrimination can come in many different forms. In a company where no single racial group predominates, it can occur in the company’s unwillingness to take appropriate actions after learning that your immediate supervisor is discriminating against you because of a dislike of your racial origins. Alternatively, it might be more subtle, such as the perceived feelings of discrimination felt by a lone African American working at a company with an overwhelming Caucasian workforce or those experienced by an Asian American working in a company where African Americans predominate. No matter the reason or cause of race discrimination, whether it comes from a group of employees whom management chooses not to confront after receiving discrimination complaints, or from a single manager or supervisor unfairly targeting an individual due to race, intentional discrimination based on race is not only emotionally scarring and hurtful, but it is also illegal.
If you live in Idaho and you believe that you have been a victim of racial discrimination, your first move should be to contact a law firm that specializes in race discrimination law in the workplace. Fortunately, such a firm exists in Boise, Idaho Employment Law Solutions. Headed by Lieutenant Colonel USMC (Ret.) R.A.(Ron) Coulter, Esq., the firm specializes in these related fields of the law, and for a small initial consultation fee, we will give you a preliminary estimate concerning whether you may have a potential racial discrimination claim.
WHAT IS RACE DISCRIMINATION IN THE WORKPLACE?
A respected member of the Idaho State Bar and of the local African American community, combining the determination and work ethic of a Marine who rose through the ranks due to his demonstrable talents with a seasoned and analytical legal mind, Mr. Coulter will advise you as to the strengths and weaknesses of your potential racial discrimination legal claim. If he and his firm determine that you have been discriminated against because of your race, they will work tirelessly on your behalf and guide you through the complex legal process. You could ask for no better advocate to protect your legal rights.
TITLE VII OF THE CIVIL RIGHTS ACT OF 1964
HOW RACIAL DISCRIMINATION CAN OCCUR
Racial discrimination in the workplace will occur when an employee or an applicant for a job is mistreated due to race, skin color, or any specific features that are commonly associated with that race. As noted above, there are several instances where racial discrimination can occur. These include, but are not limited to the refusal to hire an individual based upon race; intentional discrimination against the individual because of their race in matters about salary, work assignments, training, and benefits; the laying off, demotion, firing, or intentional pressure to resign placed of the individual due to race; and the creation of a hostile and harassing work environment due to management’s failure to discipline for making offensive racial slurs or comments.
A racial discrimination claim is always highly fact-sensitive. Not always every perception of discrimination will rise to the level of a claim that will violate either federal or Idaho state law. An experienced race discrimination lawyer will be able to analyze the strengths and weaknesses of your claim.
