Color Discrimination

Color Discrimination Attorney in Atlanta, Georgia

Employees in the state of Georgia should feel comfortable going to work and no fear that they will be treated poorly due to the color of their skin. Unfortunately, situations like this happen far too often. The state of Georgia is an employment-at-will state, meaning that they are permitted to fire an employee whenever they want, with or without cause. Of course, there are federal laws that protect you from being fired because of the color of your skin. If you believe that you were discriminated against because of the color of your skin, you may wish to file a claim against your employer. At Ben Barrett Law, we are ready to assess your case and help you pursue justice. To discuss your case with a legal team you can trust, contact Ben Barrett Law today.

Color Discrimination in Georgia

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and the courts define color as the pigmentation, complexion, or skin shade/tone. When an individual is discriminated against based on color characteristics of their skin, they may have a color discrimination case. Employees who have suffered from serious or persistent discrimination due to the color of their skin may be entitled to file an EEOC claim against their current or prospective employer.
