Although we have state and federal laws in place to protect people from race discrimination or sexual harassment, the color of a person’s skin can still affect their ability to get hired, earn a promotion, or receive other benefits of employment. Even in the San Francisco Bay Area, employers, managers and supervisors still discriminate based on race, believing that they can avoid punishment for violating civil rights laws.
Race Discrimination Attorneys who Can Help
Race-based discrimination takes many forms. Whether you are in Oakland or Berkeley, San Francisco or San Jose, El Cerrito or Burlingame, race discrimination especially but not only in the workplace can be a serious problem. Race discrimination can also occur in hotels or public accommodations, restaurants, or even in governmental relationships as on BART or MUNI. Discrimination can be as overt as racial slurs shouted in your face, but it might also be as subtle as informal “policies” discussed only behind closed doors that result in members of certain racial groups not being hired.
Under state and federal laws, both types of discrimination are equally illegal. The challenge is often reaching out for a consultation with a discrimination attorney, and letting that lawyer review the facts of your potential case against the backdrop of the law. Only an experienced discrimination lawyer can help you evaluate how best to defend your rights. With offices in San Francisco, Oakland, and San Anselmo in Marin County, our discrimination attorneys are easily available for a consultation; reach out for one today, and remember that any consultation will be kept in the strictest confidence.
