Austin Race Discrimination Attorneys
While racial discrimination should not be tolerated under any circumstances, racial discrimination in the workplace can prevent individuals who are discriminated against from performing even their most basic job-related duties. When Austin employers actively engage in racial discrimination or allow racial discrimination to persist, they may be held liable for their contribution to a hostile work environment.
The Austin race discrimination attorneys at The Melton Law Firm will work with you to hold discriminatory employers financially responsible for the hostile work environment you’ve had to suffer through.
Basis for Race Discrimination
Austin employers are legally obligated to address any form of racial discrimination that occurs in the workplace; however, when Austin employers allow discrimination to persist or, alternatively, actively participate in that racial discrimination over a period of time, they may be held liable for their actions. Racial discrimination includes any:
- Racial slurs,
- Race-related “jokes,”
- Racially-motivated derogatory comments, or
- Any conduct, verbal or physical, that is based upon an individual’s race
Our Austin legal team will aggressively defend your rights and seek full reparation for your pain and suffering.
