Racial Discrimination

Did Your Kansas or Missouri Employer Discriminate by Color? Our Lawyers Can Help.

Are you being treated differently at work due to your race, color or ethnicity? While most people would like to believe we live in a world that is free from discrimination, the truth is that in many workplaces and many other venues, discrimination and prejudices are very real.

At Holman Schiavone, LLC, we provide relentless advocacy to employees who have been subjected to many types of discrimination or harassment in the workplaces throughout Missouri and Kansas.

Representing Kansas City Area Employees in Racial Discrimination Disputes

Race discrimination means any treatment that is different in the employment relationship because of the employee's race, color or ethnic origin. If you are fired, denied proper pay or benefits, or suffer other mistreatment at work based on these factors, you should speak to an attorney about pursuing a legal solution.

Examples of racial discrimination may include:

  • Equally qualified employees of a different race are paid higher wages.
  • Equally qualified employees of a different color are given better opportunities to succeed through better hours or more lucrative sales regions.
  • A less qualified employee of a different ethnic background receives a promotion to which you believed you were entitled.
  • You were laid off from your job while equally or less-qualified employees of a different color kept their jobs.

In many instances, if you have suffered from any of these forms of racial discrimination at work, you may also have endured racial harassment that has gone uncorrected. It is important to understand that you have rights.
