Have you or a loved one faced workplace discrimination due to race, national origin, gender, age, disability, or pregnancy?
Discrimination in the workplace can take many forms, from unfair hiring processes to harassment.
Our Florida attorneys at Chanfrau & Chanfrau can help you stand up for your rights.
Your Rights Are Protected By State and Federal Law
On the state level, discrimination is prohibited by the Florida Civil Rights Act (FCRA). On the federal level, Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 makes many forms of employment discrimination unlawful. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) is a federal agency that was part of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The EEOC enforces civil rights laws against workplace discrimination. Even in an at-will state like Florida, the EEOC protects employees from all forms of discrimination.

Two Classes of Racial Discrimination Disparate Treatment vs. Disparate Impact Discrimination
This alleges that an employer singled you out and treated you differently than others in similar positions due to your race. Your employer could discriminate on physical characteristics like skin color, hair texture, facial features, or any other traits associated with your race.
Disparate Impact Discrimination
This form of racial discrimination occurs when an employer's neutral policies impact you disproportionately due to your race. This could include banning hairstyles like cornrow braids or dreadlocks. This form of discrimination can make the employee feel less welcome.
