Colorado workers are protected from employment discrimination based on race by both Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and Colorado law. All applicants, employees, and workers should be judged on their individual qualifications for a position rather than their racial background. Racial discrimination still occurs in far too many workplaces across Colorado; if you feel that you have been discriminated against on the basis of your race, our Colorado race discrimination attorneys are ready to fight for your rights. Discrimination based on race can occur in all aspects of employment including:
If you or a loved one believe that there is a connection between your racial background and an adverse employment action that was taken against you, you should seek professional legal counsel as soon as possible. Our Denver Colorado race discrimination lawyers have tremendous experience fighting for workers who have been discriminated against on the basis of their race and will fight just as hard for you.
Discrimination on the basis of color or national origin is also illegal under both federal and Colorado law. Workers who believe they have been racially discriminated against may also be able to bring a claim for color or national origin discrimination. Color discrimination can occur between people of different races or even people of the same race, and refers to discrimination based on differences in complexion, shade, tone, or pigmentation of the skin. National origin discrimination can occur when workers are treated differently because they are from a different country, speak with an accent, or merely appear to be a certain ethnicity. Both of these types of discrimination are illegal. If you believe you have been discriminated against on the basis of color or national origin, our Denver race discrimination attorneys will fight to protect your rights.
In addition to broad protections in federal law, Colorado also has extensive protections against racial discrimination in place. The CROWN act of 2020 specifically extends Colorado’s protections against racial discrimination to also protect hair texture, hair type, or a hairstyle commonly or historically associated with race. This is a broader protection than what federal law provides and offers substantial protections to Colorado workers. If you or a loved one feel that you have been discriminated against in violation of the CROWN act, our Denver Colorado racial discrimination lawyers will be pleased to assist.
While it is generally well-known that discrimination on the basis of race is illegal, employers will often attempt to hide racially motivated employment decisions by giving false pretextual reasons for the decision instead. It can often be difficult to prove that employers relied on race rather than the pretextual reason, so securing professional legal assistance is crucial.
