National Origin Discrimination
National Origin Discrimination Attorneys in Georgia
The federal statute most commonly known as Title VII, prohibits employers from discriminating against employees because of their national origin. In other words, an employer cannot take adverse employment actions or allow a hostile work environment to affect an employee because he or she was born in a country other than the United States, or if he or she is descended from people born outside of the United States.
If you prove that your employer has violated Title VII, then you are entitled to lost wages, compensatory and punitive damages, and attorneys’ fees. The compensatory and punitive damages are capped at certain amounts depending on the size of the employer.
If you suspect that you have been the victim of national origin discrimination in the workplace, please call (470) 579-3936.
