Combating Racial Discrimination In The Workplace

Racial discrimination in the workplace is unlawful, regardless of whether it is open and obvious or more subtle and discreet. No one should be denied his or her right to make a living because of race. If you believe you have been the victim of racial discrimination, contact me, employment attorney Matthew A. Kaufman. I help people overcome unlawful racial discrimination in the workplace. With offices in Westlake Village and Los Angeles, I represent clients throughout the San Fernando Valley and West L.A.

Taking Action Against Discrimination Based On Race

Both state and federal laws strictly prohibit employment discrimination based on race, ethnicity and national origin in addition to other protected classes. Having litigated thousands of employment cases, I have the skills and experience to help individuals protect their rights against racial discrimination stemming from:

  • Disparate treatment, or deliberately treating people differently because of their race. Slurs, "jokes" and other offensive behavior that creates a racially hostile work environment fall into this category.
  • Disparate impact, or excluding members of a certain class or race from certain jobs or promotions. Company policies that adversely affect a particular minority group fall into this category.

Employees who have experienced racial discrimination or suffered adverse actions, such as demotion or unlawful termination for reporting racial injustices, have the right to file employment claims. I offer the skilled legal support needed to do so. I can review your case in detail and take the appropriate steps to remedy your situation. This could mean bringing the case before the appropriate California labor boards or filing a claim in state or federal court.

I have protected employees' right since 1993. In my career, I have recovered millions for disenfranchised employees in Los Angeles, Ventura and throughout California. Learn more about my firm's results or give me a call to learn more.
