Individuals living in the United States are entitled to certain rights. These rights help to protect people from being exploited or discriminated against, and the protection of these rights is important. Determining whether or not your civil rights have been violated is essential when it comes to protecting them.
Here are three tips that you can use to better identify and manage civil rights violations in the future:
1. Identify the right being violated.
While people are entitled to a number of rights, only certain rights are considered to be protected. These protected rights help to prevent people in positions of power and authority from discriminating against another individual. Protected rights can include your right to equal opportunities regardless of your race, gender, or sexual preference.
Rights that are not protected by the law include things like the right to smoke or own a pet. You can be told smoking or pet ownership isn't allowed without having your civil rights violated, but you can't be told you are not able to work somewhere because you are bisexual.
2. Attempt to negotiate.
Once you have determined that a protected right is being violated, it can be beneficial to negotiate with the party infringing on your rights. Sometimes your protected rights are violated without the responsible party being aware of the violation, and simply bringing the violation to their attention can resolve the situation.
Negotiations can take place outside of a courtroom, giving you the opportunity to peacefully resolve any civil rights violations you experience in the future.
3. Seek legal recourse.
In some cases, a civil rights violation can result in significant financial loss or emotional pain. If the violation of your rights has cost you a job, promotion, or resulted in public ridicule, then you may be entitled to financial compensation. Working with an experienced attorney will help you determine the financial value of your civil rights violation.
You can file a lawsuit seeking legal recourse, helping you recoup the financial reward your civil rights violation has made you entitled to.
Dealing with the infringement and violation of your civil rights can be challenging. In order to ensure that you are doing everything possible to protect your rights, you need to know how to identify and address violations in the future.
Be sure that you know what your protected rights are, that you are willing to negotiate, and that you seek legal recourse when a civil rights violation has resulted in financial loss or emotional pain.
