Ethnicity Discrimination Lawyers

National origin/ancestry discrimination cases are complex. Employers who engage national origin or ethnicity discrimination often attempt to mask their illegal conduct by falsely claiming legitimate reasons for employment decisions. When the discrimination is perpetrated by a manager, the company as a whole often rallies around the discriminating manager. Once an employee asserts a national origin or ethnicity discrimination claim, many employers have the recourses to hire large corporate law firms to defend their actions. Carroll Law Firm, SC focuses its entire legal practice on representing employees, professionals and executives. Loyalties will never be divided because the firm does not represent employers.

Attorney Douglas J. Carroll, Jr., the founder and managing attorney at Carroll Law Firm, SC has the knowledge and experience to peel back the layers of management-speak and get at the truth. He has the skill and tenacity to effectively fight for justice regardless of the size and recourses of the employer or the law firm they hire.

What is National Origin/Ethnicity Discrimination?

Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (as amended) refers to it as national origin discrimination, the Wisconsin Fair Employment Act refers to it as National Origin/Ancestry discrimination but considering its broad application the best term may be ethnicity discrimination.

Employers may not discriminate individuals based upon the country in which they were born or the part of the world they or from but the laws do not stop there. Employees are also protected from discrimination because of their ancestry, culture, ethnic background, because they appear to be of a certain ethnic background (even if they are not of that ethnicity) or because they may speak with an accent.

Ethnicity/National Origin discrimination also includes treating an employee less favorably because of their association with a person of a particular national origin, ethnicity or culture or their association with a particular ethnic organization or group.

While it may be counterintuitive to some, the laws recognize that people of the same ethnic background may discriminate against each other because of their ethnic background.
