Representing Employees And Employers In Claims Of Discrimination On The Basis Of Race Or National Origin
Discrimination on the job based on race or national origin is illegal in Michigan under applicable state and federal laws. Although this is well-known to most people, racial and religious discrimination at work are still quite pervasive.
Were You Treated Less Favorably Because Of Your Race Or National Origin?
You may have experienced illegal race discrimination in the workplace if you were treated less favorably because you are in a protected class because of your race or national origin: for example, perhaps you were not hired, not promoted or not given the same amenities because of your membership in a particular racial or ethnic group.
