Racial Discrimination Lawsuits
If you have been denied equal treatment based on race or country of origin, you need to discuss your situation with an advisor. Because for victims of racial discrimination, formal complaints to the relevant federal or state body are the most effective way to obtain compensation and end discriminatory practices that may have gone unchallenged for decades.
Racial discrimination often occurs in association with housing, employment, and access to financial or other services. Our advisors know the ins and outs of racial discrimination lawsuits, so contact us for a free review of your case.
There are laws that protect workers against workplace racism and related discrimination.
These laws prohibits the employers and other employees from discriminating other people based on their race or ethnicity.
Unfortunately, cases of racial discrimination at work still happens in different organizations. You can detect racial discrimination when not hired, not promoted or fired because you belong to a certain race or ethnicity.
It doesn’t matter where you come from, you should not be discriminated based on your color or race. Again, you should not be harassed by the employer and other employees because of your race.
The harassment may be directed to you as racial jokes, isolation, workload, remarks.
Also, you could recognize racial discrimination through other signs. Its generally referred to under the Federal and various state laws in Australia, “different and or less favourable treatment”.
Do not confused in that employers must give you for favourable treatment because of your race. However they must “reasonably facilitate, adjust” for your race issues. I.e. your accent is bit hard to understand, or you’re not used to Australian cultural differences.
Even when the joke is funny and you even laugh about it, it can be offensive to you. When racial slurs or inappropriate names are directed to people from a certain ethnicity, it would be a sign of racial discrimination. Other signs include being denied promotion because of your skin color yet you deserve. You could also be discriminated against when your evaluation is based on your race and not performance, because they favour someone from a different race or colour.
When you have feeling or you are suspicious that you are being discriminated based on your colour, you should get advice, go to the human resources officer, if not sure who this is ask, the company should have equal opportunity policies and training on this. (unfortunately many don’t) If you’re not getting anywhere, or the company wants to cover your complaints up, not investigate it properly, or the investigation is one sided or wants to get rid of you because you complained, Call us, Immediately Get free advice, do not suffer in silence.

Successful Racism Claims
When there is a claim on the “balance of probabilities” (talk to us about this) that you were subjected to racial discrimination, you should receive financial compensation. Your compensation package will include lost benefits, and lost income among other financial losses, including monies for pain and suffering.
You will be required to provide evidence of racial discrimination, where you can. (emails, text messages, facebook postings, photos, etc. (If you have no evidence, this doesn’t mean you do not have a claim). An experienced workplace representative will assist you in a number of ways.
Look into the matter.
Be aware not every unfair treatment reflects illegal discrimination. Such unfair treatment should, however, fall in the category of the law prohibiting racial discrimination. A professional advisor possess the knowledge to determine whether the employer or another employee discriminated you because of your race.
There are situations when determining racial discrimination is easier than others. However, an experienced representative will be able to detect racial discrimination even in when the situation seems complicated.

- Jokes about a particular race, even if you have found them funny or have laughed at them
