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. If you believe you have been a victim of racial discrimination or harassment in the workplace, it is urgent you contact our Oklahoma City employment discrimination lawyers at Mazaheri Law Firm by calling 405-414-2222.

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
