What is Considered as Racial Discrimination at Work?
Because of the Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, racial discrimination is prohibited. If you are being treated by an employer differently because of your race, you likely have a claim because that is is prohibited by law. The New York Human Rights Law also gives you legal protection from prohibited treatment by your employer.
You cannot be fired based on your race. An employer cannot refuse to hire you based on your race. They cannot keep you from promotions, cannot demote you, and cannot punish you based on race.
If you speak up about being harassed or discriminated against because of your race by your coworkers and your employer responds with retaliation, that is also prohibited.
What Do I Do If I’m Being Discriminated Against?
If you believe you are being discriminated against, we want to hear from you right away. You should call our employment lawyer right away. The sooner, the better. We can help you file a claim with the EEOC to get you justice.
Justice happens in the form of money damages. For example, if you are wrongfully terminated, you deserve to get those lost wages. Getting fired can create a huge financial disaster for you. When you are wrongfully let go because of your race, then you deserve to see that money return to you. You are also standing up against an employer and telling them that you are not going to put up with their racial bias and that they should never do that to someone else.
Racial discrimination at work is never acceptable and you should never just let it happen without holding the employer accountable.
