It’s difficult to imagine an act of racial harassment more deeply offensive than for a coworker to place a noose in the locker or other work area of a Black employee. Unfortunately, such behavior persists in the workplace.
California and federal laws protect every worker from race harassment. Racially offensive conduct can create a hostile environment and compromise your safety and your job performance. If you find a noose or other racially hostile or insensitive materials in your workspace, locker or other work setting, you may have a case for race harassment.
Our attorneys at The Armstrong Law Firm provide serious representation for harassed clients throughout San Francisco Bay Area and Northern California. If you believe you are experiencing race harassment in your place of employment, we can help you seek justice.
Pursuing Recompense And Making Your Voice Heard
Because you are protected by the law from racial discrimination and harassment, damages in a civil lawsuit may include those that are compensatory and punitive. Compensatory damages are damages given to the plaintiff for emotional and psychological suffering and financial losses related to the harassment. Punitive damages may also be available to punish an employer under certain circumstances.
You deserve to work in a place where you feel safe and able to perform your job to the best of your ability. Our lawyers will draw from years of experience and resources as they assist you in prosecuting your harasser or employer.
