National Origin / Religious / Race Discrimination
Employment discrimination on the basis of national origin, religious belief, or race is against the law. If your employer has made biased decisions against you and you believe those decisions were influenced by your national origin, religious belief, or race, The Sampath Law Firm wants to hear about it and protect your rights under the law.
WHAT IS NATIONAL ORIGIN DISCRIMINATION?
You may be a victim of national origin discrimination if your employer treats you unfavorably because you are from a particular country or part of the world, because of your ethnicity or accent, or because you appear to be of a certain ethnic background even if you are not. This kind of injustice is often unreported because victims do not know their legal rights or may be afraid to complain. Standing up to discrimination takes great courage and the attorneys at SLF are here to protect your rights and deliver you the justice you deserve. Contact our office so that we can explain the law and start the process of vigorously advocating on your behalf.
WHAT IS RELIGIOUS DISCRIMINATION?
It is unlawful for your employer to treat you differently because of your religious beliefs. The law protects not only people who belong to traditional and organized religions such as Christianity, Islam, Judaism, Buddhism and Hinduism but also others who have sincerely held religious, ethical, or moral beliefs. The law also requires an employer to reasonably accommodate an employee whose sincerely held religious belief, practice, or observance conflicts with a work requirement. The attorneys at SLF are committed to representing individuals who have been harassed or discriminated against due to their religion. If you believe you are a victim of this kind of discrimination, contact our office to see if you have a potential case.
WHAT IS RACE DISCRIMINATION?
Race discrimination involves treating an employee unfavorably because he/she is of a certain race or because of personal characteristics associated with race (e.g. hair texture, skin color, or certain facial features). Race discrimination also includes color discrimination, which involves treating someone unfavorably because of skin color complexion.
Race discrimination and related forms of prejudice in the workplace are still pervasive and it is imperative that this injustice be exposed. The attorneys at SLF have the knowledge and experience to make a difference for you. Contact our office for guidance and to see if you have a potential case.
