Race Discrimination

Washington, D.C. Race Discrimination Lawyer

The civil rights movement resulted in federal laws and penalties that protect the rights of minorities in the workplace. Any individual who suffers racial discrimination in the private or public sector is able to bring legal action against their employer. Race discrimination cases are highly sensitive and require skills, experience, and resources to succeed in court. At Alan Lescht and Associates, P.C., we offer dedicated employee rights advocacy to individuals who have faced racial discrimination in the workplace.

Racial discrimination in the workplace is prohibited by law, and you have the right to take legal action against your employer. Our lawyers provide aggressive representation to seek justice on your behalf.

Our firm has experience handling cases under the Civil Rights Act, Title VII, and similar state laws that protect the civil rights of minorities in the workplace. We handle cases involving hiring, termination, promotion, compensation, training, and other conditions or privileges of employment.

Racial discrimination for federal employees

In federal race discrimination cases, the primary issue is non-selection of racial minorities. If you applied for a federal job and feel that you were denied the position or were not provided certain opportunities because of your race, our attorneys will assert your rights against the discriminatory federal employer.
