Race Discrimination at Work is Illegal
In both New Jersey and New York, it is illegal for your employer to discriminate against you because of your race. For example, it is a form of illegal employment discrimination for your company to fire you, demote you, skip you for a promotion you, or otherwise discriminate against you because of your race. It also is illegal for your employer to harass you because of your race.
Whether you are African-American, Hispanic, Latino, Asian, Arabic, Middle Eastern, Native American, Pacific Islander, Caucasian, or another race, you should not have to experience racism at work. If you have been the victim of discrimination or harassment based on your race in either New Jersey or New York, then you should contact an experienced employment lawyer at the Nirenberg Law Firm to discuss your options.
