Racial discrimination

Our Los Angeles racial discrimination attorneys at The Rubin Law Corporation serves clients in Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, San Diego and the entire Southern California region in the fight against racial discrimination in the workplace.

Federal law — primarily the Civil Rights Act of 1964 — prohibits employers from discriminating against job applicants and employees on the basis of race, whether in hiring, pay, promotion, benefits or termination.

Employment decisions based on stereotypes (or assumptions about traits or abilities of members of a particular race) are barred, as are employment decisions based on a person’s ancestry, birthplace or culture, linguistic characteristics, or surnames associated with a specific national origin. In California, the Fair Employment and Housing Act provides similar protections for victims with enhanced benefits and remedies.

Race discrimination lawyers in Los Angeles

Even in the absence of overt examples of race discrimination, an employer’s seemingly neutral workplace policies and hiring criteria can amount to discrimination if they disproportionately and negatively impact members of a specific group. In addition, it is against the law for an employer, potential or current, to ask you the origin of your surname, where you come from and whether or not you are of a mixed race. Racial discrimination is not pretty; contact The Rubin Law Corporation to speak to a race discrimination lawyer in Los Angeles to get the representation you need.
