Employees who work in Toledo or other areas of Ohio are generally protected against race-based workplace discrimination by both the Ohio Civil Rights Act and by Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Race discrimination can take many forms, including (but not limited to) failure to hire or failure to promote, racially hostile work environment, subjection to different treatment, including harsher discipline, than employees of another race, denial of training or experience granted to employees of another race, retaliation for reporting racial discrimination, or wrongful termination motivated by race.
If you have suffered race discrimination in employment in Toledo, in northwest Ohio, or anywhere in the region, you may have several options for seeking remedies for that discrimination, including but not limited to bringing legal action against your employer. You may be entitled to lost pay, recovery of other financial losses, recovery for emotional distress and anxiety caused by the discrimination, and in some cases, restoration of your job if you were wrongfully terminated.
Race discrimination cases are highly sensitive and require skill and experience to succeed. I have over 34 years experience in Toledo, Northwest Ohio, and throughout the region, representing individuals who have faced racial discrimination or harassment in the workplace. I am experienced in handling race discrimination cases under both state and federal law, and in both state and federal courts.
In addition to representing race discrimination victims in the state and federal courts in Toledo, Northwest Ohio, and throughout the region, I regularly represent race discrimination victims before the Ohio Civil Rights Commission (OCRC) and/or the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) in Toledo and in other parts of Ohio. In many cases, filing a charge of discrimination with the OCRC or EEOC is a vital and necessary step in pursuing your race discrimination claim. While representation by an attorney is not required to pursue a discrimination claim before the EEOC or OCRC, an experienced employment attorney can provide valuable assistance in pursuing your claim, by assisting you in the crucial initial step of filing the charge, in preparing important documentation, in responding to the evidence and arguments advanced by your employer, and in many other ways. Additionally, your attorney can help you ensure that your right to bring a lawsuit is maintained in the event that the EEOC or OCRC does not rule in your favor.
If you believe that you may have been a victim of race discrimination or harassment in the workplace in Toledo, in Northwest Ohio, or anywhere in the region, I encourage you to call my office. Of course, no attorney can guarantee success in a given case, but I will do everything I can to assert your right to work and pursue the financial compensation you deserve, free of racial discrimination or harassment.
