Los Angeles National Origin Discrimination Lawyers

Put More than 50 Combined Years of Experience on Your Side

The California Fair Employment and Housing Act prohibits an employer from discriminating against any employee because of that employee’s national origin. Because there is rarely “smoking gun” evidence of racial discrimination, circumstantial evidence will usually suffice. If you were subjected to this kind of discrimination, contact a Los Angeles employment law attorney at Feldman Browne Olivares today for a free consultation about what to do next.

Building a Successful Case

Having the right evidence is crucial to building a strong case. To raise an inference of discrimination, an employee may utilize statistical evidence, comparative evidence, or direct evidence. Direct evidence, such as discriminatory comments made by the decision maker, is often the most persuasive.

An inference of discrimination is usually raised by showing that the employee:

  • Belongs to a protected class (i.e., comes from a country different from that of the company’s management or the majority of workers)
  • Was subjected to an adverse employment action (like termination, demotion, or suspension)
  • Similarly situated employees outside the protected class were treated differently and more favorably

In larger companies, it may be possible to use statistical analysis to demonstrate that the employer systematically discriminates against a particular race or national origin in hiring, promotions, and terminations. Such evidence would raise an inference that the action taken against a particular employee of that race or national origin was also infected by racial animus or prejudice.

Comparative evidence also raises an inference of discrimination by showing that different rules and standards were applied for persons of different races and national origins.

Because discrimination cases usually turn on specific facts, and there is usually a one-year time limit for filing, it is important to consult with an attorney as soon as possible after a potentially discriminatory action has been taken.
