Michigan Race Discrimination Lawyer

Employment racial discrimination refers to discriminatory employment practices due to or based on your race, such as a prejudice in hiring, promotion, job assignment and/or compensation. There is also another type of discrimination called unintentional discrimination. This type of discrimination is often called statistical discrimination and it occurs when neutral selection practices produce a substantial disparity of outcomes between one group and another. This type is not usually done intentionally but it is also prohibited by law much like intentional discrimination unless they are due to specific job requirements, such as a certain height or weight to do the job safely.

Federal and state laws, as well as ordinances of counties and municipalities, prohibit employers from discriminating against an employee on the basis of an individual’s race. It does not matter what race you are, your employer cannot base their employment decisions based upon race.

You may experience certain types of racial discrimination such as termination due to your race, failure to hire or promote you due to your race, or creating a hostile work environment by harassment due to your race. These types of conduct are prohibited and could be actionable. If you believe your employment has been adversely, unlawfully, or unfairly affected call us at the Law Offices of Christopher Trainor & Associates.

Your job may have been adversely, unlawfully or unfairly affected in the following manner:

  • Termination or suspension
  • Cutting or changing your hours
  • Changing your job duties
  • Demotions
  • Pay, retirement plans, or disability leave
  • Harassment
  • Hostile work environment
  • Transfer, promotion, layoff or recall

It is also illegal for a company or management to take retaliation against an individual for filing a charge of discrimination, participating in an investigation, or opposing discriminatory practices, or to make employment decisions based on stereotypes or assumptions about the abilities, traits, or performance of individuals based on a person’s race.
