The Glass Ceiling and Race
“The glass ceiling” is a term most frequently applied to women unable to get promotions and fair pay because of a biased occupational system. In reality, a glass ceiling exists whenever someone is unfairly kept from advancement and fair pay because of sex, race, age, religion, or sexual orientation. The glass ceiling is a reality faced by millions of Americans every day: qualified people who, for arbitrary reasons, do not get the pay and promotions they deserve.

Knowing Your Rights
Under United States law, it is illegal to discriminate against people based on race. Unfortunately, it is a sad fact that people are often paid less and given less opportunity for advancement because of the color of their skin.
If you have been discriminated against because of your race, your employer is in direct violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the important piece of legislation that protects people of all races, colors, religions, sexes, and national origin from discrimination. You have the right to sue your employer to get the compensation that you deserve.
If you or someone you love has been victimized because of their race, you deserve compensation. At The Melton Law Firm, we are dedicated to fighting to redress this injustice. To learn more about what our Austin employment lawyers can do for you, contact us today by calling 512-330-0017.
