Racial Discrimination in the Workplace

For the common person, many legal questions pertain to racial discrimination in the workplace. These can range from racial discrimination in USA, racial discrimination at work, and racial discrimination law. Often time’s people turn to Experts online. Listed below is five of the top racial discrimination in the workplace questions that have been answered by Experts.

What is reverse discrimination?

Reverse discrimination is a term referring to discrimination against members of a dominant or majority group, including the city or state, or in favor of members of a minority or historically disadvantaged group. Groups may be defined in terms of race, gender, ethnicity, or other factors.

Are there any racial employment discrimination laws?

Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 defends those against employment discrimination on bases of gender, race, and belief. If there’s more fifteen workers or more from a company than Title VII can apply as well as local and state governments. Employment organizations, labor agencies, and federal government also apply. The individual can file a lawsuit with EEOC if they suspect that their race was the reason for the decision that was made.

Does the law preclude racial discrimination if the perpetrator is the same race as the victim?

If the victim and the perpetrator are the same nationality there can still be racial discrimination. Race discrimination is unlawful treatment based on a persons skin color (how light or dark they are), tone or shade. This kind of discrimination can happen with people of diverse races or with people that’s the same race. Just like if a person was a light skin toned Mexican and said they was miss treated by a dark skinned toned Mexican boss. So it’s the same as someone being discriminated because they were dark natured rather than being light.

If someone filed a racial discrimination complaint against their supervisor, and then was removed from job duties prior to being fired-would this be a form of racial discrimination?

Many times if someone is fired after filing a discrimination complaint, it could seem like the individual was fired in vengeance since they had filed a complaint. If the individual would like to do something about the discrimination they can report it to the labor department. The individual could have an employment attorney discuss separation or reinstatement. The individual can pursue a lawsuit with the EEOC.

How would someone calculate a settlement for a racial discrimination suit.

The value of the lost earnings and profit that the individual had suffered from is what the settlement would be based on. If the individual had gone to a trial then punitive damages could have been considered. The individual should attempt to resolve the matter for the real value of the damages that they had endured as a punitive. It might not be considered subsequent to a long and costly trial. In many cases this would be a good price. Racial discrimination in a workplace is a very diverse topic. It can span a lot of questions one after another. Such as: racial discrimination act, racial discrimination laws, and racial discrimination articles. Experts can help you find answers fast and effectively.

  • I was let go of my job because I arranged to leave at the end

    I was let go of my job because I arranged to leave at the end of my shift. My adult disabled son is losing his vision and I needed to help him get off his bus and into the house. My supervisor had me answer a call that took me beyond quitting time. She then insisted I come to her office despite my reminding her I needed to take care of my son's safety. My son is a disabled adult, I am 65 years old, and my supervisor is African American. I emailed her and cc'd her supervisor re the situation. Her supervisor told her to "reach out" to me which consisted of my super instructing me to submit a signed resignation. I never resigned, yet discovered I was not allowed on my agency's staff portal thereby making communication very difficult. Without my knowledge or consent, the line supervision changed my status to unemployed. This is a mental health agency. I was a crisis intervention specialist II. The agency has needed to get African Americans into administration positions. Approximately half of the staff is no longer there because of the supervisor's control issues. I suspect there is no recourse. No one will talk to me about it. I will not be able to get other employment. Do you have an opinion about this?
    Thank you for your attention,
