Putting An End To Racial Discrimination At Work

Some people think America has reached the summit of racial equality. At Hollingshead & Dudley, however, we know that our society still has a long trek ahead of it to truly end racial discrimination. The sad truth is that we have seen race-based harassment and discrimination in workplaces across Missouri, including the use of words that many people believe were eradicated from our vocabulary decades ago.

We are fully aware that racial discrimination still occurs on a daily basis — and we are here to do something about it.

The Civil Rights Act Provides Important Protections

Under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, employers are not allowed to discriminate against employees on the basis of race, color or national origin, among other reasons. This means that your company cannot:

  • Refuse to hire you simply because of your race
  • Fire you or demote you for your ethnicity
  • Pay you a lower wage than it pays workers of a different race for the same work
  • Fail to promote you or provide advancement opportunities due to your color
  • Segregate you in any way, such as forcing you to use a different break room due to your race
