Unfair, inexcusable, and illegal – racial discrimination in the job market and the workplace is all of these things. Sadly, bias and discrimination in employment on the basis of race is also common and pervasive, impacting the lives, careers, and dignity of tens of thousands of people of color every year. When companies make hiring and employment decisions based on the color of an applicant’s or employee’s skin rather than the content of his or her character, they should be held accountable, and those whom they victimized deserve justice.
No matter your race or skin color, no matter the nature of the mistreatment or indignity you suffered, and no matter the size or power of the company or people who engaged in discriminatory conduct, the Austin employment discrimination lawyers at Sandoval James are ready to stand up for you and your rights.
We are committed to equality, fair-play and fair treatment for all Texans. We also know the laws at the federal, state, and local levels that prohibit racial discrimination in employment and provide employees with rights and remedies when employers violate those laws. With fierce determination, fearlessness, and a commitment to providing our clients with excellence in legal representation, we are champions for workers who need one.
If you believe you were a victim of employment discrimination based on your race, we welcome the opportunity to fight for you and pursue compensation and all available remedies on your behalf.
We Expose Workplace Racial Discrimination and Pursue Justice for Our Clients
Prohibited racial discrimination against job-seekers and workers can take several forms; some are blatant, but many are more subtle. Employers will assert that decisions they made or actions they took with regard to an applicant or employee had nothing to do with race. They will paper their files or create pretexts to justify their conduct and conceal their racial animus.
We know all the tricks and ways employers try to hide their illegal conduct and shield themselves from liability. We can expose the real reasons why they treated a person of color the way they did, and we can make things right.
We expose and pursue compensation for workplace racial discrimination involving such conduct as:
- Unfair recruitment practices.
- Discriminatory hiring practices.
- Differing terms and conditions of employment.
- Discrimination in job assignments, promotion, and advancement.
- Discrimination in levels of compensation and availability of benefits.
- Discipline and discharge based in whole or in part on race.
- Racial slurs or negative comments about an employee’s race.
- A hostile work environment based on racial animus.
- Retaliation based on reporting discriminatory conduct.
