Race Discrimination in the Workplace
Experiencing Race Discrimination in the Workplace?
Thompson Legal Center Can Help!
I read an interesting article (see below) on the “right way” for leaders to respond to discrimination, racism and racist comments in the office. These tips could be helpful for not only those in a leadership position but for anyone who is a witness to a racist comment or action. Unfortunately, race discrimination is still ever-present in today’s workplace. There are Federal and State laws designed to help protect employees from race discrimination in the workplace. Title VII of The Federal Civil Rights Act of 1964, as amended as well as the Florida Civil Rights Act of 1992 were enacted with the intent of prohibiting discrimination in the workplace. Under these Acts, employers are prohibited from discrimination against employees based on race, color, national origin, religion, sex, pregnancy, age, disability, etc. Put plainly, you have rights and it is illegal for you to be discriminated against in the workplace based on your race.
It is time to act on those rights! If you feel that you are or have been a victim of race discrimination at work, Call Thompson Legal Center at (813) 769-3900 for a Free Consultation Now! There are strict time limits for reporting and filing claims of racial discrimination.
