Examples of Racial Discrimination in the Workplace

Sometimes, it could be difficult to understand whether we’ve been the victim of racial discrimination. In many cases, it is easier to believe that someone is simply in a bad mood or having a bad day than to accept that someone is being discriminative. Consider the following examples of racial discrimination in the workplace:

  • Your manager assigns you only menial tasks because he claims that the important work cannot be trusted to “people of your kind.” Employees of the manager’s same race constantly get tasked with major products while you and others of “unfavorable races” get stuck with lowly tasks.
  • You go to your employer to complain that your manager is constantly making comments and jokes about your race. Your employer responds to the complaint by changing your schedule to an unfavorable one.
  • You are paid significantly less than a coworker in the same position with the same amount of experience (the only difference being that the coworker is the same race as the boss).
  • You have been constantly denied a promotion even though you are qualified and would be a perfect fit for the position. Less experienced employees of “more favorable” races usually get the promotions when they are available. An employee of your same race has never been promoted.
  • You are demoted from your position to a less desirable position without a valid reason. Your position is quickly filled by someone of the employer’s own race.
  • Your employer constantly denies your requests for time off while approving nearly all requests other employees make.

Racial discrimination is not limited to just the few examples listed above. Because racial discrimination can present itself in so many ways, it is important to always be aware of what’s happening in the workplace and how it is directly affecting you. For more examples of racial discrimination in the workplace, you can contact our attorneys.

The Laws that Prohibit Racial Discrimination

There are laws on the federal and state level that make racial discrimination illegal. These laws include the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the California Fair Employment and Housing Act. The Civil Rights Act of 1964 is a federal law that prohibits workplace discrimination based on race, origin, gender, age, religion, and disability, for example. The Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) offers similar protections at the state level in California. In general, state-level anti-discrimination laws offer more protections. FEHA, in specific, prohibits workplace discrimination based on disability, age, race, origin, religion, sex, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, genetics, medical conditions, marital status, and military status, for example.

If your employer violated any of the laws that protect you from discrimination, your employer could be held accountable. For more information, do not hesitate to seek legal assistance with the employment attorneys at our law firm at your earliest convenience.

Do You Have the Right to Do Anything?

You were the victim of racial discrimination while you were working at Tesla. Now, what? Can you do anything about the poor treatment to which you were subjected? Can you do anything to hold Tesla accountable for the harm that you suffered associated with racial discrimination in the workplace? If you suffer any sort of discrimination in the workplace, such as racial discrimination, you actually have options in terms of what you could do to hold your employer accountable.

Consider the following options available to those who have suffered racial discrimination in the workplace:

  • You could file a claim with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). The EEOC is a federal employment agency that enforces federal employment laws and also handles employment claims (in violation of federal laws) when they arise. After filing a claim with the EEOC, the EEOC will investigate the situation and hold the employer accountable (if the employer is found to have violated employment laws).
  • You could file a claim with the Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH). The DFEH is California’s state employment agency that enforces state employment laws and also handles employment claims whenever they arise. After filing a claim with the DFEH, the DFEH will begin an investigation and take action against the employer depending on the outcome of the investigation.
  • You could file a civil lawsuit against your employer. Before being able to file a civil lawsuit against your employer, you will have to be granted the right to sue from the specific agency with which you filed your claim. With the assistance of an employment attorney, your civil lawsuit could reach a successful outcome.

If you would like to learn more about the different options available to you, do not hesitate to seek legal assistance with the experts at our law firm at your earliest convenience. The employment lawyers at our firm are ready to provide you with the guidance that you need to take action against your employer.

Could You Recover Compensation?

If you suffered racial discrimination in the workplace and pursued a claim, could you be eligible to recover compensation? Do you have the right to recover compensation for the racial discrimination that you suffered? Could you receive any monetary compensation? Depending on the specific details surrounding your claim, you could be eligible to recover compensation for the following:

  • Lost wages
  • Lost work-related benefits
  • Pain and suffering
  • Punitive damages

The specific type and amount of compensation that you could be eligible to receive depends strictly on the details of the claim (i.e. how you were affected by the incident). If you would like to learn more about the type and amount of compensation that you could be eligible to recover if your racial discrimination claim against Tesla reaches a successful outcome, do not hesitate to contact our employment attorneys immediately.

How Long Do You Have to Sue?

Without a doubt, you have the right to take legal action against Tesla if you were subject to racial discrimination. Although you have the right to pursue a claim, you could lose your right to take any action if you fail to act within the appropriate length of time. To ensure that you have a thorough understanding of the time that you have to file a claim, both with the appropriate employment agencies and in civil court, you should be familiar with the following:

  • The EEOC allows employees to file claims within 300 days of the incident
  • After receiving the right to sue from the EEOC, claimants have 90 days to file civil lawsuits against their employers
  • The DFEH allows employees to file claims within 1 year of the incident
  • After receiving the right to sue from the DFEH, claimants have 1 year to file civil lawsuits against their employers

If you are ever unsure about the specific length of time that you have to pursue your claim, do not hesitate to seek clarification from an experienced attorney. Failing to have a thorough understanding of the statute of limitations that applies to your claim could result in losing the right to sue. For more information, do not hesitate to contact the employment experts at California Labor Law Employment Attorneys Group at your earliest convenience.
