Were you discriminated against in the workplace because of the color of your skin? Do you believe you were harassed, demoted, or otherwise treated differently solely due to your skin color? If so, there is a strong chance you will have a valid claim against your employer, and our Atlanta color discrimination attorney is here to help you file that claim. Please continue reading and reach out to Ben Barrett Law to learn more about skin color discrimination in the workplace and how our legal team can fight for you. Here are some of the questions you may have:

How is skin color discrimination in the workplace defined?

Color discrimination in the workplace is defined as when an employee is fired, not hired, harassed, segregated, or otherwise discriminated against in the workplace due to the pigmentation, complexion, or shade/tone of their skin. This is something we’d like to believe no longer happens, but unfortunately, it does.

Am I protected under the law?

You are. Color discrimination is prohibited under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and if you believe you are a victim, you have legal grounds to bring a claim against your employer.

What should I do if I want to sue my employer?

If you believe you’re a victim of workplace discrimination and you want to sue your employer, the first thing you should do is document the incident(s) of discrimination. If you believe you were wrongfully terminated from your position, you should get the reasoning for your termination in writing from your employer. You should also save any emails, texts, or other types of evidence that can help prove your case. Next, you should hire an attorney who can help build your case and pursue the compensation and justice you deserve.

The bottom line is that discrimination against anyone based on any factor they cannot control is abhorrent, and our firm is here to put a stop to such treatment once and for all.
