Austin Racial Discrimination Lawyer

There are different manifestations of racial discrimination in the workplace. It can take the form of harassment as well as being denied promotions and raises.

If you believe you have been discriminated against in the workplace because of your race, you may be able to fight back with a lawsuit. There are laws that protect people in the workplace, but many people simply choose to walk away from the problem. It is important to know that you have rights and you can fight back with the aid of an employment law attorney.

At the Law Offices of Kell A. Simon, I focus my entire practice on protecting employees' rights and have extensive experience litigating cases of racial discrimination in the workplace. Based in Austin, I routinely provide clients throughout Texas with the access to a racial discrimination attorney that they need.

Steps To Take If You Believe You Are A Victim Of Race Discrimination In The Workplace

  1. Attempt to gain an understanding of the reason for what you interpret as discrimination. If you have been denied a promotion, you need to get an explanation. There could be a reason for what happened that only seemed discriminatory at the time. It may have been due to factors that you were not aware of.
  2. Try and document everything as you go, so if it comes to the point where you are ready to consult with an attorney, you will have all of the information written down. This includes names, dates, times and what was said. If you have the information for an attorney, it is easier for him or her to determine whether you have a case and how strong it is.
  3. Contact us at your earliest convenience. I will help you understand the validity of your claim, what legal options are available to you and whether you can expect to obtain a successful result if you pursue a claim against your employer.

Be sure that you are not posting anything critical of your employer on social media sites such as Facebook or Twitter. Even if your employer is unlawfully discriminating against you, posting to social media instead of privately talking to a lawyer can adversely affect your career.
