Race & Color Discrimination
Award-Winning Advocacy for Employees in New York
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 & Heller 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.
Am I at Risk of Race-Based Employment Discrimiation?
Race-based employment discrimination can take many forms, from inappropriate racial remarks to offensive 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.
If you have been treated less favorably at your place of work, there is no reason to not contact a New York race discrimination lawyer from our award-winning firm. We are one of the first law firms in New York to focus on employment law. With 110 years of collective experience, you can rely on our legal team to protect your rights and interests, whether the discrimination you experienced was based on your nation of origin, your ethnic-linked appearance, the race of your spouse, or another race-associated characteristic.

I received the most compassionate and professional assistance from SP&H. I felt that Mr. Heller truly cared about me and the situation I was in. He was able to be my voice during a difficult time. He responded promptly to any correspondence, took the time to explain to me any questions or concerns, and helped ease any kind of stress that I had during a dispute with a previous employer.

On short notice, Brian Heller reviewed contracts with complex international dimensions and found important discrepancies that I and other senior-level executives had missed completely. He was fast, thorough, and detail-oriented in providing pragmatic advice that enabled us to be sure that we were getting the fairest and best possible treatment under the law. We remain tremendously grateful for his support and look forward to working with him again.- Eric
After having a terrible experience at my last job, facing the anxiety again of having to rehash the treatment was daunting. Davida Perry not only did an amazing job calming down my nerves but she fought for me tooth and nail and did a great job securing what my past employer owed me. I won’t lie, there were moments I wanted to give up, but Davida was always there to help me stay focused and realize that I didn’t need to let them win. She was really great at countering all of their arguments, I pity anyone that would try to prove her wrong. She thought of everything we need and kept me constantly updated. Mostly what I appreciated about Davida was her kindness, and her genuine care for my mental health. She wanted to make sure I was taking care of myself during a very trying time. I cannot recommend this firm enough. They all clearly care about their clients and want to do best for you. Don’t be afraid to stand up for yourself, and if you’re worried about the challenges that lie ahead be sure to team with Schwartz Perry & Heller, they will have your back and fight for justice.- T.B.
Brian was extremely helpful and responsive it helping me review my first ever separation agreement. He was able to explain the legalese in a way that allowed me to understand the risks I could be taking on down the road. After speaking to him, I was able to negotiate to include additional language in my agreement that will protect my future career. He was nothing but professional and incredibly responsive. I can't recommend him enough.- Former Client
