Does your boss treat you differently than others because of your race?
Have you told your manager that you are experiencing a hostile work environment because of your race but your employer refuses to take action?
Are you afraid to report racial discrimination at work because you think that your employer may fire you in retaliation?
Madia Law Represents Employees Who Are Victims of Racial Discrimination
If you answered “yes” to any one of the above questions, Madia Law can help. We’ve won tough fights on behalf of victims of racial discrimination at work against some of the biggest corporations in the country.
Racial discrimination at work includes more than just name calling. It also means that employers can’t treat employees differently because of their race, ethnicity, or national origin. It is illegal for employers to discriminate based on race when it comes to wages, promotions, discipline, suspensions, or terminations.
Oftentimes, employers will claim that an employee was terminated for a reason other than race when, in fact, the real reason was racial discrimination. Madia Law has lots of experience dealing with this scenario. Once the employer has stated its supposed reason for termination, we take that reason and compare it to other employees in the same place as my client. Most of the time, other employees who still have their job have previously done the exact same thing that the employer says motivated it to terminate my client. Once we’ve established that fact, employers usually want to settle the case rather than explain the real reason for their discipline or termination of my client.
You May Be Entitled to Lost Wages, Emotional Distress Compensation, and Even Your Old Job Back
If you have been the victim of racial discrimination at work, you may be entitled to back pay and front pay damages, reinstatement to your job, emotional distress compensation, treble damages under the Minnesota Human Rights Act, punitive damages under Title VII, and your attorney fees and costs.
