Your Rights in the Workplace in Terms of Color Discrimination
The EEOC specifically lists a person’s skin color as a protected class, meaning that anytime an employee is terminated, demoted, or made to feel as though he or she is in a hostile work environment on the basis of their color, they may have a valid claim against the offender. If you file a claim and it is successful, you may receive compensatory damages for the harm you’ve incurred as a result of discrimination in the workplace due to your skin color.
Taking Action After an Act of Discrimination in the Workplace
If you believe that you are a victim of discrimination in the workplace, you should do everything in your power to document the incident(s), as you may use this evidence as proof of your claim. That being said, it may be helpful to try and resolve the issue within your company to start. For example, you should consider speaking with your HR department, your employer, or another party who may put a stop to the harassment. If this doesn’t work, our firm can file a claim either with the EEOC.
