What is Racial Discrimination?
Discrimination by race occurs when a person is treated in an unfavorable manner based on personal traits associated with race. For example, skin color, hair type and facial features can be the subject of unlawful treatment in the workplace. In addition, marriage to or associations with a person of a particular race, including affiliations with race-based groups cannot be used as a basis for unfair treatment in employment practices.
Laws that Protect Chicago Employees from Racial Discrimination
If you think an employer has violated your rights based on race, you should know that there are laws to protect you. The Illinois Human Rights Act and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (Title VII) provide legal protection against discriminatory practices in employment whether you are an employee or applicant. Mr. Peters can help you understand what is necessary to successfully establish your claim.
