California Race Discrimination Lawyers
Browne Labor Law and its of counsel attorneys advocate for employees who have been subjected to race discrimination in the workplace. Race discrimination can occur in a variety of forms and at various stages of the employment relationship, including race discrimination during hiring, race discrimination while the employee works for the company, and race discrimination during the termination of the employee. In order to bring a race discrimination lawsuit against an employer, the employee must almost always first proceed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and/or Department of Fair Housing and Employment (DFEH) procedure. Browne Labor Law and its of counsel attorneys are California race discrimination lawyers that represents employees during the EEOC and DFEH processes. The law firm prepares charges or complaints of discrimination for employees, and represents clients during EEOC investigations, DFEH investigations, EEOC mediations, and DFEH mediations. Additionally, unlike some other California race discrimination lawyers, Browne Labor Law also aggressively litigates clients’ race discrimination claims in California state and federal court.
Laws Prohibiting Race Discrimination in the Workplace
Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (Title VII) and the California Fair Housing and Employment Act (FEHA) prohibit discrimination based on an employee’s race, as does 42 U.S.C. §1981 (section 1981). Both Title VII and FEHA require the employee to file a charge or complaint with the EEOC and/or FEHA.
California Race Discrimination Lawyers with A Unique Perspective
The founder of the law firm previously worked for a race discrimination employment law firm that predominantly represented employees. However, that law firm also represented a small number of employers. That experience has helped Browne Labor Law and its of counsel attorneys provide even more effective representation for employees who have been the victim of race discrimination in the workplace.
