Racial Discrimination Lawyers

Assert Your Rights with a Royal Oak Employment Attorney

Racism sadly still exists and harassment and racial discrimination in the workplace continues to be a common problem in America. Even though this behavior is illegal, both coworkers and employers often perpetrate actions that create an uncomfortable environment for certain racial groups. At the Rasor Law Firm, our Royal Oak employment law attorneys take this issue very seriously and believe that racial harassment should never be tolerated. You deserve to feel safe and secure while performing your job. Our team of racial discrimination lawyers have handled a wide range of racial discrimination cases, and we are dedicated to helping you seek justice.

Racial harassment can include:

  • Racist jokes and stories
  • Racially motivated comments
  • Inappropriate gestures
  • Offensive memos or emails

Unlike general harassment, such as yelling, foul language, or an unreasonable amount of work, racial harassment that is severe enough to alter your employment conditions or create a hostile work environment is considered illegal. Additionally, racially motivated harassment that is communicated in a demeaning or disrespectful tone will create a stronger case, should you decide to take legal action.
