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.

Recent Racial Discrimination Questions

  • Hi Lawgirl, I live in Florida where a I work for one the top

    Hi Lawgirl,
    I live in Florida where a I work for one the top employers in the area. I was recently called in a meeting for one Subject matter by later learned we were not in fact going to be discussing any of the issues listed on the calendar. Instead I was told that I don't fit in. When I asked for examples I wasn't given any. I was however told i don't give the appearance if being happy. The meeting ended with very suggestive statements encouraging me to look for employment else where and to so sooner than later. That was 60 days ago. I've now received an email indicating that I will be receiving a termination date and it would be in my best interest to find employment prior to being issued a date.
    What are my rights? Legally can they do this?
  • I was recently fired from a law firm in Washington, DC, over

    I was recently fired from a law firm in Washington, DC, over some words I spoke and was overhead and reported to HR. The words were " a little black girl" said with respect and nothing derogatory. My Director of Administration said it was considered a racial slur and that the language was unacceptable and I was terminated. Is what I said a racial slur? I didn't know the word "black" was an unacceptable term now. I was newly employed and in the 90-day probation period and they could fire me on a whim. I am not a racist and believe I've been unfairly treated.
    What are your thoughts or advice? thank you for your time. Trish
  • Can an employer take back a salary increase that was given

    Can an employer take back a salary increase that was given by a previous managers? I was given a salary increase in 2012 and then again in 2013 after taking on some additional work duties. Now both of the managers that approved the raises are no longer with the company and new management is now saying that old management should not have given the increases and they what me to agree to go back the original wage prior to the 2012 increase. Is the legal?
