New Orleans Racial Discrimination Attorney
Due in part to the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the vast majority of employers now claim to be “equal opportunity employers” who do not discriminate against people based on race or country of national origin. As a result, racial discrimination is seldom open or obvious.
Instead, managers and supervisors quietly engage in discriminatory practices that effect promotions, salary, hiring, and lay-offs. While subtle, racial discrimination is still evident in hiring and promotion patterns that are often at odds with a person’s qualifications and job performance reviews.
At the law office of Glenn C. McGovern, we look at employee reviews, hiring patterns, personnel files, and other documents in exposing racial discrimination.
If you have been denied a job, a promotion, or have been laid-off due to race discrimination, contact employment attorney Glenn C. McGovern today to schedule a free consultation to discuss your case.
Exposing Racial Discrimination
Working with our own investigators, eyewitness testimony, and company records, we consider the following when preparing a race discrimination case:
- An employee’s qualifications
- An employee’s experience relative to other workers
- An employee’s performance reviews
- The percentage of a raise or raises for other similarly qualified and experienced employees
- The race or ethnicity of those promoted or hired in recent years
- Evidence of racially derogatory comments made by managers, supervisors, or co-workers
- Actions taken by an employer’s Human Resources department
Employee Handbooks – Holding Employers Liable for Racial Discrimination
Most employers have a stated policy prohibiting racial discrimination in hiring and firing decisions. If a company has an employee handbook, most will state specific procedures that should be followed when reporting race discrimination.
If you brought your case to the attention of your company’s Human Resources department and they did nothing about it, they can be held financially liable for any harm you suffered as a result.
As your attorney, Glenn C. McGovern cross-exams Human Resources managers and exposes their inaction and failure to adhere to stated policies contained in an employee handbook.
When analyzing hiring patterns and promotion decisions, Mr. McGovern asks hard questions of managers as to why certain qualified minorities were not hired or promoted. Using quantitative analysis and statistics, we compare the racial makeup of a company and its management in order to expose patterns of discriminatory behavior.
