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.
