Racial Discrimination

Minnesota Racial Discrimination Lawyers

At Villaume & Schiek, P.A., of Bloomington, Minnesota, we represent the interests of individuals who have been discriminated against on the basis of race or ethnicity. This can take many forms, including name calling or race slurs, as well as discrepancy in treatment, pay, benefits, opportunities or other compensation. It can also extend to the employer’s hiring and firing policies.

Other examples can include:

  • Applications asking the race of the applicant
  • Segregation within the workplace facility
  • Segregation assigning certain tasks or territories to certain races or ethnicity
  • Practical jokes or demeaning comments
  • Overt racism or demonstration of negative racial stereotypes

Did You Just Experience Reverse Discrimination? We Can Help.

Our lawyers are also prepared to represent individuals affected by reverse discrimination. These are situations where employers seek to hire workers or individuals of a certain race or ethnicity to fill a quota, often at the detriment of those already working at the company or others applying for the position.

We will thoroughly review the details of the situation to determine where discrimination occurred and which individuals were at least in part responsible for the treatment. There is a limited amount of time in which an employee can take action against his or her employer. If you are experiencing discrimination at work, it is important that you seek skilled legal guidance to proactively confront the situation and protect your rights.
