Race Discrimination

Racism has been a harsh reality in our nation's heritage for many decades now. Society is slowly becoming color-blind, but it is not quite there yet. Many Americans are still discriminated against routinely due to their race and such treatment is illegal. The Atlanta race discrimination attorney team at Brandon Hornsby, P.C. believes that we are all like individuals regardless of color and that we should be treated as such.

Race discrimination is a broad area in employment and civil rights litigation. As Atlanta race discrimination attorney Brandon Hornsby will explain to you, if you are treated differently due to your race, whether it be in the job application process, while already employed, or if it is a cause for your termination, you have legal recourse. Differences in promotions, job titles, descriptions, duties, and pay between you and a person of another race can all be indicators of race discrimination, and you should contact a good Atlanta race discrimination attorney to discuss your options.

In Georgia, race discrimination claims are governed by Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 as well as a handful of other state and federal laws. Atlanta race discrimination attorney Brandon Hornsby is highly skilled in Title VII claims as well as dealing with other Georgia specific statutes and regulations which can affect your claim. For example, if you are employed by a state agency and are being discriminated against, your state agency is in violation of the Georgia Fair Employment Practices Act of 1978. Atlanta race discrimination attorney Brandon Hornsby knows that being discriminated against due to the color of your skin can leave you feeling helpless and unsure of what laws apply to you and what do not; contact him to discuss your claim, and do not let an employer's illegal practices continue.
