Austin National Origin Retaliation Attorneys
As part of their efforts to reduce and eliminate discrimination in the workplace, employees in Austin should feel comfortable to report any instances or patterns of discrimination perpetrated by anyone in the workplace. Unfortunately, as you may have now experienced for yourself, some Austin employers not only fail to prevent any further discrimination but actually punish those people who would stand up for the rights of themselves or others.
At The Melton Law Firm, our Austin national origin retaliation attorneys may be able to help you hold your employer financially liable for any retaliatory action that has been taken against you after you reported discrimination in the workplace.
Retaliation Claims Associated with National Origin Discrimination
Under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, employers are expressly forbidden from discriminating against a person because of his or her national origin. As such, you have every right to report any instance of discrimination in the workplace, particularly the following:
- Derogatory or otherwise offensive language targeting specific national origin
- Deliberate and consistent denial of opportunity for employees of specific national origin
- Termination and denial of consideration for employment based in national origin
Whatever the exact circumstances of your situation happen to be, our Austin legal team will do everything they can to help you uphold your right to speak up about discrimination in the workplace.
