New York is a diverse state with a long history of multi-cultural acceptance and celebration. No one should be forced to experience discrimination in New York. At Schwartz & Perry, LLP, we are passionate about protecting the civil rights of employees in this state. Both federal and state laws in New York protect employees from race and color discrimination, including the New York City Human Rights Law and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
Fighting for Your Employee Rights
Race-based employment discrimination can take many forms, from inappropriate racial remarks to offensivee ethnic slurs to firing a current employee or refusing to hire a qualified applicant due to his / her race or color. Employment law is very strict in its protection of employees on the basis of race and ethnic appearance. Anyone can be the victim of race bias at work, including Caucasians, African-Americans, Latinos, Asians, Native Americans, Pacific Islanders, Native Hawaiians, Arabs, and multi-racial individuals.
