Race Discrimination

Race Discrimination

New York and Connecticut Employment Lawyers

It is against the law for an employer to discriminate against an employee because of the employee's race. Despite strides in this area, it remains the case that some employers deny employees equal treatment in the workplace unlawfully.

An employer cannot discriminate against you when hiring to fill a position, when firing, or when determining your pay or the conditions or privileges of your employment. An employer must not discriminate against you because of race, national origin, or ancestry.

Racial discrimination in the workplace may involve verbal harassment in the workplace that can result in a hostile work environment created through the use of:

  • Use of ethnic or racial slurs
  • Ethnic or racial jokes
  • Demeaning name calling based on your race or ethnicity
  • Intimidation, or demanding you perform humiliating work

If you are forced to leave a job because of intolerable conditions, such as these, you also may have the right to file a claim based upon discrimination in employment.
