Race Discrimination Lawyers in Oklahoma City
Employment Lawyers Ready to Fight for Your Rights
As much as we would like to believe otherwise, racism is still alive and well in modern society, particularly in the workplace. Fortunately, under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, employees and job applicants are protected from discrimination by employers based on their race or color. In other words, employers may not take your race or color into consideration when making employment decisions.
Common Forms of Race Discrimination
It is illegal for employers to discriminate against persons of a certain
race in regards to any terms or conditions of their employment, including
their hiring, pay rate, title, promotions, or benefits. Racial discrimination
is not always obvious, as many sophisticated employers may attempt to
hide their discriminatory tactics through more subtle practices that indirectly
screen out minority applicants and employees.
Employers may discriminate against employees though the following methods:
- Administering job and intelligence tests
- Implementing appearance and dress codes
- English-only rules
- Placing considerable weight on arrest records for job applicants
- Recruiting members of only certain races
- Protecting Discriminated Workers Since 2009
