Race/Color Discrimination

Racial Discrimination is illegal!

What is Race Discrimination?

Race Discrimination is when a person is treated unfairly because of their race.

Furthermore, the New York City Law is so much more protective of employees with respect to Race discrimination. For example comments or conduct that may not be considered Race discrimination under the state or Federal law, may be covered by the New York City law. New York City has some of the best employment laws for people subject to discrimination based on their Race.

Additionally, the law even applies to people who are simply associated with someone of a particular race such as an employer who discriminates against an employee because the employee's spouse is of a certain race.

Discrimination can occur even in situation when the harasser is of the same race as the victim.

Any form of comments or conduct that relate to a person's disability may be actionable. That is why it is important to call and discuss the particulars of your case.

Furthermore, it is illegal to retaliate against someone because they have complained about Race Discrimination.

Available remedies may include lost wages, emotional distress, punitive damages, and attorneys fees.
