Tips to Win a Wrongful Death Claim

You've Been Stereotyped

If you've ever been sent home or singled out because of your hair, racial discrimination may be at play. Hair discrimination is a real threat to the United States. Unfortunately, most states don't recognize hair discrimination as a form of racial discrimination in the workplace. There are some states that have taken steps to protect natural hair. California and New York are two of those states. Luckily, other states are joining the ranks of those that provide protection against racial discrimination based on hair. If you've been singled out because you've chosen to maintain a natural hairstyle, contact a discrimination attorney near you.
