Get Trusted Legal Guidance From Our Chicago Race Discrimination Lawyers

There are numerous laws prohibiting racial discrimination in the workplace. It is illegal for employers to engage in certain discriminatory practices under the Illinois Human Rights Act (775 ILCS 5/) and the federal Civil Rights Act of 1964. Unfortunately, this does not prevent it from continuing to be a common problem in the workplace. Common examples of racial discrimination many workers face include: 

  • Making derogatory comments, mischaracterizations, or sweeping generalizations based on race;
  • Tolerating racist communications and attitudes among managers and employees;
  • Making hiring or firing decisions based on race;
  • Factoring in race when assigning job tasks and in paying or promoting workers.
