Racial Discrimination Attorney in Santa Ana
The Gould Law Firm is committed to fighting against race discrimination in the California workplace. With our extensive experience, we handle cases of all sizes, from small individual claims to complex class actions. Our focus is on the merit of your case, not its size.
When you work with us, we provide regular updates on the progress of your claim. Moreover, you won't be directed to a law clerk or paralegal for your first consultation; you'll always meet and discuss your concerns with an experienced employment law attorney.
We understand the financial stress that can come with legal action, which is why we often work on a contingency basis. This means there's no upfront cost to you. Your fight against race discrimination is our fight, and we're dedicated to championing your cause to ensure justice is served.
Understanding Racial Discrimination in the Workplace
Racial discrimination occurs when an employer treats a job applicant or an employee less favorably because of their race, color, nationality, ethnicity or national origin. It’s not just morally wrong — it's illegal under federal law (Title VII of the Civil Rights Act) and state laws.
Our experienced Racial Discrimination Lawyers at The Gould Law Firm have a deep understanding of employment laws. We use this knowledge along with our dedication towards helping our clients fight for their rights against oppressive employers.
Remedies for Racial Discrimination
We approach each case individually, evaluating all aspects thoroughly before developing a strategy tailored specifically to your situation. Our goal is to ensure the best possible outcome for every client we represent.
Potential remedies for race discrimination at work can vary depending on the specifics of the case and the applicable laws. In California, as in many other states, these remedies can include:
- Compensatory Damages: May cover financial losses such as back pay, front pay (future wage losses), and benefits.
- Injunctive Relief: A court may issue an injunction to stop the discriminatory practices and ensure they do not continue in the workplace.
- Reinstatement or Promotion: If you were wrongfully terminated or passed over for promotion, you may be reinstated to your previous position or promoted to the position you were denied.
- Attorney's Fees and Costs: In some cases, the prevailing party may recover their attorney's fees and litigation costs.
- Punitive Damages: In cases of particularly egregious discrimination, punitive damages may be awarded to punish the employer and deter future discrimination.
It's important to consult with a race discrimination lawyer in Santa Ana who has a thorough understanding of employment law. They can assess the specifics of your case and guide you on the most appropriate remedies to pursue. The remedies available may also vary depending on whether the case is pursued under federal or state law.

Wage & Overtime ViolationsFederal and state laws entitle you to a minimum wage and overtime pay when you work beyond a certain number of hours in a day or overall workweek.
Disability DiscriminationDespite federal and state laws that expressly forbid discrimination against people for their disabilities, it’s unfortunately common for employers to engage in such behavior.
