Race & National Origin Discrimination
Admit it or not, race discrimination exists
Employers and most of society like to believe that race discrimination is a thing of the past, that it no longer exists. Unfortunately, race discrimination and racism do exist in and out of the workplace. Today it is usually more subtle, less overt, and difficult to prove without the help of an experienced employment law attorney.
Race and national origin are characteristics we are born with, characteristics that cannot be changed. And they are characteristics that should not be used as an excuse to treat you differently from people of other races. At The Thater Law Group in Las Vegas, we represent people who face discrimination at work because of race.
Race discrimination: Direct evidence, indirect evidence
Proving race discrimination is difficult. Most people would prefer to believe that race or ethnicity discrimination does not exist. Even when they hear derogatory slurs, they may believe this to be harmless banter. Direct evidence of discrimination can be seen in comments, e-mails, anything written or said that is clearly racist. Indirect evidence is more subtle and circumstantial. Is there a pattern of treating people of other races more favorably?
