Aggressive Representation When You Have Been Discriminated Against because of National Origin

Under federal law, as well as the New Mexico Human Rights Act, it is illegal for an employer to discriminate against an employee or a potential worker because of national origin. That means that your employer cannot treat you unfavorably because you are or seem to be of a certain ethnic background, because you are from a certain country or part of the world, or because you have a certain accent. If you have experienced workplace sanctions, been denied employment or lost a job because of your national origin, you have a right to seek relief. Buchanan Law Firm, LLC can help.

At Buchanan Law Firm, LLC we have fought for the rights of workers in employment law disputes for more than 20 years. Attorney Deena Buchanan is a highly experienced litigator who has successfully served as lead attorney on numerous complex and high-profile cases. She has a thorough knowledge of both federal and state laws governing discrimination in the workplace. With offices in Albuquerque, she has a comprehensive understanding of New Mexico law, the state’s court systems and how judges handle cases here. She’s built a strong reputation for thorough preparation, as well as poise and composure in any situation.

Attorney Buchanan knows the importance of regular communication, and works hard to be available and accessible when you need answers. She’ll take the time to learn the details of your case, so that she can tailor her actions to get the outcome you seek.

Aggressive Advocacy When You’ve Been the Victim of Discrimination Based on National Origin

At Buchanan Law Firm, LLC we provide comprehensive legal counsel to men and women who have been wrongfully treated in the workplace because of ethnicity or national origin. We will exhaustively investigate the facts and circumstances of your case, carefully gathering evidence to prove disparate treatment because of national origin. We’ll prepare and file all pleadings and other documents necessary to take your case through trial, and we’ll be a strong voice for you in all meetings, hearings and proceedings.

It’s important to understand that you can seek relief for an employer’s actions when there is evidence of either a discriminatory intent or a discriminatory impact. Accordingly, if your employer imposes a new rule that affects everyone of a specific national origin, you can still seek relief, even if there was no intent to discriminate.

At Buchanan Law Firm, LLC we handle national origin discrimination in a wide variety of situations:

  • Where prospective employees are disqualified because of ethnicity or national origin
  • Where workers are given less desirable work assignments or denied benefits because of national origin
  • Where employees are terminated because of national origin

We will help you seek monetary compensation for lost wages or other benefits, and may seek to have you reinstated to your job.
