As an employee, you have the right to work in an environment that is free from discrimination. Federal and state laws prohibit discrimination in the workplace that is based on the color of your skin, your race or your national origin.
While the law was created in order to prevent discrimination against minorities, it applies to workers from all races. Everyone is entitled to the same rights under the law.

What Is Reverse Discrimination?
Reverse discrimination is discrimination against a member of the majority in favor of a minority. This type of discrimination can be difficult to detect as it is often done with the best of intentions. Many employers wish to promote diversity and encourage hiring workers from a range of backgrounds.
However, discrimination of any kind based on race or national origin is prohibited under the law. If you are facing unfair treatment, harassment or retaliation on the basis of your race, we can help. Our firm will diligently investigate your situation and evaluate your case. We will clearly explain your legal options and explore every avenue to protect your rights.
