About Race Discrimination Law in Los Angeles

Unfortunately, race discrimination is still prevalent in today’s workplace. Being discriminated against because of your race can be a horribly demoralizing and degrading experience that no one should suffer.

It is also unlawful for employers to allow a hostile work environment where employees are subject to actions, jokes, or comments based on their race. Moreover, employers cannot retaliate against an employee for reporting or complaining about such discrimination.

If you or someone you know has been discriminated against due to their race in Los Angeles or Southern California, please contact us for a free consultation.

Case Focus: JM

JL Race Discrimination Law Case Example - African American Construction Worker

JM is African-American and was the only African-American employee at his worksite. He had to endure a racially hostile and abusive work environment.  JM was constantly subjected to racist comments and racially charged physical and verbal threats.  

JM complained on several occasions about this severe and pervasive racial harassment, but nothing was done.  In fact, management retaliated against JM for making these complaints and eventually fired him.

The harassment was so severe that it created a hostile and abusive work environment that caused JM severe emotional distress.

California’s Fair Employment and Housing Act prohibits an employer, including any supervisor, from harassing an employee based on race or creating a racially hostile work environment.  We helped JM get justice for the severe harassment and retaliation he endured.

If you have been harassed, discriminated, or retaliated against based on a protected category such as race or national origin, give us a call at 310-400-5891 for your free intake.
