Florida Race Discrimination Attorney

Nobody has to tolerate race or color discrimination anywhere – least of all at work.

If you are a job applicant or employee in Florida, you are entitled by law to be treated the same as other employees regardless of race. Unfortunately, race or color discrimination is still common. If you are treated differently by an employer because of it, you do not have to suffer in silence.

You have legal recourse to stop it, prevent it from happening in the future, and potentially to receive compensation.

As a Florida race discrimination lawyer, I can help you:

  • Understand your rights according to state and federal laws
  • Assess whether you have a legitimate race discrimination complaint
  • Pursue legal action if you have been discriminated against because of race or color

What does the law say about race or color discrimination?

Both federal and Florida state civil rights laws protect you from being discriminated against based on race or color. Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 addresses this area of workplace discrimination (as well as many other categories) and covers both employees and applicants for a job.

Under these laws, no employer can discriminate against you on the basis of your:

  • Personal characteristics associated with race
  • Skin color complexion
  • Hair texture or certain other facial features

The law also covers you if you face discrimination because you are married to (or associated with) a person of a certain race or color. Discrimination can still be deemed to have occurred when perpetrated by someone of the same race or color as you.

You are covered by law when an employer engages in the following employment-related activities:

  • Hiring and firing
  • Awarding pay
  • Making job assignments or promoting employees
  • Laying off employees
  • Training employees
  • Awarding fringe benefits, such as leave and health insurance
  • Other terms or conditions of employment

Examples of race/color discrimination

The race/color discrimination laws protect you against the following types of actions by an employer:

  • Refusing to interview or hire people of a particular race or color
  • Asking inappropriate questions in an interview (e.g. where an applicant’s family comes from)
  • Refusing to promote an employee of a particular race or color
  • Failing to give similar job assignments or titles to people of a particular race or color as they give to other employees
  • Offering lower compensation (wages, salaries, benefits) for an employee of a particular race or color
  • Denying training opportunities that are offered to other employees
  • Disciplining an employee of a certain race more harshly than other
  • Retaliating against someone who makes a complaint or files a claim of race or color discrimination

Discrimination in the workplace can also lead to harassment (verbal or physical), which is legislated against separately in federal and state law.

Specific Case Examples

Sarah, an African American job applicant, is consistently overlooked for job positions despite having the qualifications and experience. The employer’s bias based on race or national origin prevents her from accessing equal employment opportunities.

Michael, an employee of Asian descent, faces persistent racial slurs, derogatory comments, and offensive jokes from coworkers or superiors. This racial harassment creates a hostile work environment, negatively impacting his well-being and job satisfaction.

Maria, a Hispanic employee, discovers that her colleagues of a different race or national origin, with similar qualifications and job responsibilities, are earning higher salaries. This wage disparity reflects discriminatory practices based on race or national origin.

David, an employee of Middle Eastern origin, consistently faces barriers and biases preventing him from being considered for promotions or leadership positions. Despite his qualifications, racial or national origin discrimination hinders his career growth and advancement.

Lisa, a Native American employee, receives consistently lower performance ratings compared to her non-minority coworkers, despite demonstrating equal or better job performance. This biased evaluation based on race or national origin limits her professional growth and opportunities.

Jamal, an African American employee, experiences excessive monitoring, unwarranted suspicion, and increased scrutiny from supervisors or security personnel solely based on his race. Racial profiling creates a discriminatory work environment, eroding trust and morale.

Juan, a Latino employee, is consistently assigned to menial or lower-level tasks, while employees of a different race or national origin are given more prestigious or challenging assignments. This segregation based on race or national origin limits Juan’s career development and job satisfaction.

Rashida, an employee of Arab origin, is denied access to training programs or professional development opportunities that are readily available to her non-minority colleagues. This denial limits her skills enhancement and inhibits career growth due to racial or national origin discrimination.

Have you lost out at work because of race or color discrimination?

Race discrimination in the workplace can be hard to prove. However, it remains common in the workplace and we must continue to fight for what is right.

It may be obvious, such as when an employer refuses to hire people of a certain race or color or restricts their hours. A subtler form of discrimination would be the denial of training or personal development opportunities that other employees receive simply because of your race.

Some employers, unfortunately, hold deeply ingrained and stereotyped beliefs, making assumptions about people’s traits or abilities based on race or color. Others look for easy ways to cut costs.

Race or color can wittingly or unwittingly be used as an excuse for discrimination.  Policies may be designed that create a hostile environment for some races.

These are unlawful activities by an employer that can impact an employee’s:

  • Job prospects and career opportunities
  • Family income and financial situation
  • Health and wellbeing
  • State of mental health

Get the right legal advice from a Florida race discrimination lawyer and you can start protecting yourself against racial discrimination.

Have you experienced racial discrimination in the workplace? What can you do?

If you have been discriminated against in the workplace because of race or color, you may be able to take legal action that requires your employer to:

  • Take action to restore you to the same position you would have been in if the discrimination had not taken place
  • Pay damages to compensate you for back pay, benefits, emotional distress, suffering, and so on
  • Prevent future acts of discrimination

As an experienced Florida race discrimination attorney, I can help assess your case for race or color discrimination. Remember that the law protects you not only from discrimination but also from retaliation by an employer if you do make a claim.

If pursuing legal action is agreed upon, I will help you take the necessary steps to build your case.
