Race Discrimination Attorney San Jose, California
The Civil Rights Act of 1964 and California’s Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) protect employees from discrimination based on race, national origin, ancestry or skin color. At Mesirow & Fink, we are devoted to protecting California employees from racial discrimination in the workplace and holding employers liable for civil rights violations.
Steven Fink has more than 35 years of experience in racial discrimination cases. We know the law that protects employees from racial discrimination, and we have significant experience in working with racial discrimination in its many forms, such as:
- Retaliation for reporting racial discrimination
- Race discrimination in hiring, promotion or termination
- Evaluation of job applicants using race, national origin or skin color
- Racial harassment that creates a hostile work environment
- Racial slurs or jokes
We also handle cases of reverse discrimination, which is a type of racial discrimination against a traditionally dominant group, such as white men. In these cases, a woman may be favored over a man for a promotion or a black employee may be favored over a white employee. We understand that racial discrimination can happen in any workplace and to any employee. Our firm’s goal is to protect the civil rights of all employees.
Uncovering the Facts in Racial Discrimination Cases
In many cases of employment discrimination, there are many motives for the discrimination. In the case of a black woman being fired, for example, we understand that this may be a case of both racial discrimination andgender discrimination. Our goal is to uncover all the motives behind discrimination. We strive to find out what motivates employers and co-workers to commit illegal acts of discrimination.
Since some discrimination is intentional and fairly out in the open, we can easily identify those cases of racial discrimination in the workplace. Other cases may be harder to prove. You can help make a strong claim by collecting evidence and making a record of all instances of job discrimination. Our firm is dedicated to uncovering the facts and protecting your employee rights.
We want to hear your story, and we offer confidential consultations. Our firm is committed to offering traditional legal services that focus on personalized, caring attention for every client.
