Standing up for racial discrimination in the New York workplace

Any type of racial discrimination, no matter the context, is unacceptable. Unfortunately, many employees struggle in their workplaces because they are subject to one form of discrimination or another. Racial discrimination in the workplace could be direct or subtle, but it is always unlawful.

If you feel that you have become a victim of racial discrimination in the New York workplace, it is important that you take action to assert your rights. By doing so, you'll be taking a stand and you may have the possibility to gain back damages.

What counts as racial discrimination under the law?

Identifying racial discrimination can be extremely difficult because it can be systematic and go almost unnoticed. Even if you are confident that you were discriminated against, it may also prove difficult to find the evidence to prove it.

Simply put, racial discrimination in the workplace counts as any type of negative action that is taken based on a person's actual or perceived race.

For example, if you attend a job interview over the phone and you are asked questions about your race, and you have reason to believe that the answer to this question was part of the decision-making process, you'll likely be able to file a racial discrimination claim. This is because a prospective employee's race should have no relevance when it comes to an employer's decision regarding whether to hire them.

If you have experienced racial discrimination in your workplace or when looking for a job, you may want to consider taking legal action so that you can get justice and obtain fair compensation for your losses.
