Workplace discrimination victims have higher burden of proof

Workplace discrimination is an issue that affects many people in Kansas City and around the country. Whether it is age, gender, religion, race, or origin-based, it is an all too real reality that many workers find themselves exposed to every day. When employers use these factors to influence their hiring decisions and employment operations, their actions can create hostile and toxic work environments. 

What is subtle racial discrimination?

Racial discrimination may seem as if it would be easy to identify. The reality is that Missouri employers who discriminate rarely do so in obvious ways. Fortunately for you, the law is prepared for subtle discrimination practices. According to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, racial discrimination is when you are treated differently because of your racial identification. It goes beyond that, though. Discrimination can also include being treated different due to characteristics associated with your race.

Missouri's racial tension issue

America has long been known as the "land of the free." Why, then, in recent years, does it often seem the opposite of this sentiment? Racial tension is hardly a new topic in the country, but in Missouri, various incidents have sparked controversy that has eventually led to involvement with civil rights organizations and state laws. 

What are some examples of racial discrimination?

Each day, workers nationwide experience discrimination on the basis of their race. In Kansas City, and across Missouri, it is imperative for victims of discrimination and all employees who recognize unlawful discrimination in the workplace to speak out. Unfortunately, some choose to keep quiet because they are worried about retaliation, which is also unlawful. When employers and other people in the workplace break the law by treating someone unfairly due to their racial background, they must answer for their behavior.

Detailing Title VII of the Civil Rights Act

Yet we here at Thornberry Brown, LLC can attest to the fact that, based upon the experiences of some of our past clients, such treatment is not always automatic.

Fortunately, the law does offer you certain protections to prevent you from being discriminated against due to your race or ethnicity.
