Common Client Concerns

There are many questions we commonly hear from clients who have suffered discrimination at work, including:

  • Will I receive justice?
  • How will fighting discrimination impact me economically?
  • What can and can’t I do in my current job?
  • Who can I register my complaint with, and who can I go to for assistance?

Attorneys Baker and Liss successfully handle racial discrimination cases by carefully analyzing the circumstances of your particular situation. They clearly explain your options so you can make informed decisions on how to proceed. You may qualify to file an employment law complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), or the Bureau of Labor and Industries (BOLI), or file a lawsuit in state or federal court.

How Will You Be Compensated for the Discrimination You Have Suffered?

Depending on your individual circumstances, you may be able to receive a wide range of compensation for illegal workplace discrimination based on race.

  • Replacement of wages lost because of your employer’s failure to promote; also wages lost due to wrongful termination
  • Emotional distress damages due to discrimination or wrongful termination
  • Punitive damages may also be assessed against employers of extreme race discrimination.
