Pursuing Racial Retaliations Claims
When you report something as serious as racial discrimination in the workplace, you have every reason to think that the matter will be quickly and positively resolved so that you and your coworkers may get on with your work. With that in mind, there was no way you could have anticipated the retaliatory action you did after simply doing what seemed right.
Now that your employer has decided to punish you for reporting racial discrimination, you will likely be eligible to pursue litigation against your employer to recover what they took away. The Austin legal team at The Melton Law Firm is prepared to help you hold your employer responsible for their wrongdoing.

- Discrimination during the hiring, promotion, or termination
- The open display of any symbols, images, or text that is racially offensive
