Race, Religion And National Origin Discrimination

One thing that is unique about South Florida is that "everybody hates everybody." At The Amlong Firm in Fort Lauderdale, our lawyers have handled cases of race discrimination and national origin discrimination between Cubans and Puerto Ricans; among Jamaicans, Haitians, and American Blacks; and between whites and Hispanics of all origins. In the workplace as in our private lives, South Florida is a melting pot that hasn't melted.

Types Of Racial, Religious And National Origin Discrimination

We get it. We understand racial discrimination, religious discrimination and ethnic discrimination. We also have experts who understand it. Our lawyers are aggressive advocates who are here to help people facing many different types of discrimination based on race, religion or national origin:

  • By not hiring someone who is a different race, color, religion or national origin
  • By passing over someone for a promotion in favor of somebody who is the boss's race, color, religion or national origin
  • By disciplining employees differently based on race, color, religion or national origin
  • By making insensitive remarks such as "You people"
  • By harassing an employee for taking off a religious holiday that is not recognized by the employer
  • By treating someone in an ugly way on the basis of race, color, religion or national origin

Since 9/11, discrimination on the basis of religion and national origin (also known as ethnic discrimination) has become even more prevalent. As a result, if you are a Muslim or if you look Middle Eastern in South Florida, you may suffer repercussions in the workplace.

Fighting Discrimination At Work And School

Religious discrimination is prevalent in many Florida charter schools. If a school is of a particular religious affiliation, the teachers who don't fit in or have a different faith may face discrimination.

Above all, we are trial lawyers. Our opponents know we are willing to go to try cases, and we obtain settlements that are generally better than those obtained by lawyers with a reputation for being reluctant to go to court.
