National Origin Discrimination
Our attorneys fight for justice
For centuries, people from around the world have come to our country to make our nation their home. That’s one of the most distinctive things about America: We continue to be the melting pot for many of the world’s cultures.
Unfortunately, some people face discrimination at work based on where they came from before moving to the United States. Strict laws, including the Civil Rights Act of 1964, ban workplace discrimination on the basis of national origin. But some people choose to ignore such laws.
If you or a loved one has experienced discrimination at work based on your national origin, our West Virginia law firm wants to help you. The attorneys at Klie Law Offices have years of experience handling such complex cases and we’re eager to help you.
Common forms of discrimination
People from a particular county sometimes face persecution in the workplace. Examples of workplace discrimination based on someone’s national origin include:
- Wrongful termination
- Offensive comments at work about someone’s nation of origin
- Refusal to hire someone based on their national origin
- Poor performance review without cause
- Failure to promote someone at work
- Physical assault
- Verbal threats
