New Orleans Race Discrimination Lawyer
Finding Solutions to Race Discrimination in the Workplace
People of all races, national origins and ethnic backgrounds call the United States home. While the civil rights movement made great strides in creating laws and penalties that protect the rights of minorities at work, racial discrimination still unfortunately occurs on the job.
At Farrugia Law Firm, LLC, we stand up for the rights of employees in cases of discrimination based on race or national origin. Lawyer Victor Farrugia has been handling even the most sensitive employment discrimination cases since 1989. Dedicated to his clients' cause, he has the experience, knowledge, resources and skill help you.
Aggressively Advocating on Your Behalf
Employers are prohibited from discrimination based on race or national origin under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Louisiana employment discrimination statutes. This means employers cannot consider race or national origin when making decisions about recruitment, hiring, promotions, salary, assignments, firing and layoffs. By the same token, employers cannot engage in reverse discrimination.
As your New Orleans race discrimination attorney, Mr. Farrugia will carefully investigate your claim. He will:
- Listen to your testimony
- Review your job qualifications
- Read your performance reviews
- Collect documentary evidence of the disparate treatment
- Compare your experience against others in the same company
- Gather evidence from those who witnessed the discrimination
Whether you have been passed up for a promotion, wrongfully terminated or otherwise penalized due to your race, Mr. Farrugia can help. An experienced litigator who is at home in the courtroom, he will not be afraid to take your case to trial. He has represented individual employees, as well as groups containing as many as 60 employees, in these types of cases.
