San Francisco Racial Discrimination Attorney
Slavery was eradicated in the United States almost a century-and-a-half ago, but racial discrimination is still alive and well in some corners of our society. While it may be more subtle than it was fifty years ago, racial discrimination still impacts a number of California employees at their jobs. The San Francisco racial discrimination attorneys at the law firm of Geonetta & Frucht fight for civil rights in one of the places where it matters most – in the legal system. We are prepared to take on employers who discriminate against blacks, Latinos, Asians, Native Americans, and other workers. If you are a victim of racial discrimination or any other form of employment discrimination at the workplace, take the first step toward justice and discuss your case with our experienced San Francisco racial discrimination attorneys as quickly as possible.
A POSITIVE IMPACT NOW AND IN THE FUTURE
Discriminating against an employee because of his race is illegal. Racial discrimination in the workplace takes many forms:
– discriminatory hiring and promoting
– unequal compensation
– less desirable job assignments
– inequitable discipline
– racial harassment
– discrimination in terminations and layoffs
Our racial discrimination lawyers also represent clients in cases involving disability discrimination, pregnancy discrimination, gender discrimination, age discrimination, wrongful termination, sexual orientation discrimination, national origin discrimination, and sexual harassment. A discrimination lawsuit can positively affect people beyond the primary parties involved; a discrimination suit is sometimes the way to motivate a company to overhaul its discriminatory policies and practices and eliminate future discrimination cases. While there is never a guarantee in any particular case, the damages that may be awarded in a racial discrimination case can include hiring or rehiring; promotion; back pay; emotional distress; attorney’s fees; and fines or punitive damages. The San Francisco racial discrimination attorneys with the law firm of Geonetta & Frucht have more than fifty years of combined experience winning legal victories under Title 7 of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, California’s Fair Employment and Housing Act, and other state and federal laws that prohibit racial discrimination.
