Charleston Civil Rights Attorney
Strong Advocates for Social Justice
If you believe you have faced unlawful discrimination, your civil rights were violated or if you were physically hurt as a result of a civil rights violation, the Charleston civil rights attorney at Ellis Roberts Law, LLC want to hear your story. We may be able to help you file a claim in the pursuit of compensation to right the wrongs against you.
As an American, you have a right to be free from unlawful discrimination and other harm such as sexual harassment or even bullying. Some of these rights appear in the United States Constitution as well as situation-specific federal and state laws.
Liability for Prohibited Discrimination, Sexual Misconduct & Bullying
If you think you have experienced a civil rights violation, Ellis Roberts Law, LLC can explain your rights and determine whether you may have a claim.
Examples of prohibited discrimination include being injured or intimidated on the basis of race, color, religion, or national origin when:
- Going to school
- Patronizing a public facility
- Applying for a job
- Serving as a juror
- Exercising your right to vote
At work, you are protected from discrimination and sexual harassment. Your employer cannot discriminate against an employee for their race, color, sex, religion, or national origin or for having an interracial marriage.
If your school receives federal funds- sexual harassment, sexual misconduct, gender-based bullying, and sexual violence are prohibited. If you are a victim of any form of sexual misconduct at any kind of a school or on campus, our Charleston civil rights attorney would be happy to review your potential claim.
Laws & Policies Regarding Civil Rights Violations
South Carolina law further prohibits harassment, intimidation, and bullying on campus. You may have potential claims in tort against the abuser, to the extent a school fails to appropriately respond to harassment claims for protected class members.
In addition, school and employment policies may provide additional means of purported protection that could have been violated.
As gender and sex-based issues, laws, and other protections continue to evolve in our society, the Charleston, SC discrimination lawyers at Ellis Roberts Law, LLC will stay apprised and are equipped to assess your story and determine whether there may be a potential civil remedy for your experience.
