Recent decades have seen much progress made in the area of race relations in the United States, but there is a lot yet to be accomplished. Unfortunately, race discrimination still happens in the workplace as people miss out on opportunities simply due to the color of their skin.
This is wrong. The lawyers of JKFM can help make things right.
At JKFM, we pursue race discrimination lawsuits on behalf of workers in Cleveland and throughout Ohio. In practice, race discrimination may involve issues such as unfair treatment, passing someone over for a promotion due to their race, failure to hire, and even wrongful termination.
We have been at this since 1979, fighting on behalf of employees who have been wronged. Our team knows what it takes to be successful in this complex area of the law, and we look forward to making sure that justice is served in your case.
Were You Discriminated Against By A Co-Worker?
If your co-workers have been treating you poorly due to your race and creating a hostile work environment, that is also a form of race discrimination. Employers are legally responsible for the behavior of their employees in the workplace, just like they are responsible for hiring, firing and promotion decisions reached due to race.
What Is Your Case Worth?
The answer will depend on the specific circumstances of your case, but successful claims can result in compensation being paid for lost wages as well as punitive damages.
