The Civil Rights Act of 1964 was a landmark document that made racial segregation illegal in the United States. It also provided for the establishment of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission to ensure fair employment practices. The Civil Rights Act was not only monumental for race relations in the United States, but guaranteed that no one would be discriminated against based on their color, sex, age, nation of origin or religion.
Despite legislative action taken to prevent discrimination, civil rights violations still occur. When actions are taken to limit the rights of any person on the basis of sex, religion, age, race, color, or disability, a civil rights violation has occurred. It is imperative to have a competent attorney on your side like Vukelja Law if you have been the victim of a civil rights violation.
Vukelja Law understands that civil rights cases can be difficult legal actions to take. Proving that discrimination did, indeed, take place, is often based on circumstantial evidence. Additionally, you must also be able to counter denials made by the person or institution who violated your civil rights. If you think you have a case, contact Vukelja Law to discuss the strength of your claim.
