Race Discrimination at Work

Unfortunately, race and color discrimination still exist in our society, but Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and state laws such as NJLAD and the PHRA prohibit any discrimination based on a person’s race or the color of his or her skin. Race discrimination can even extend to an individual’s association with people of a certain race or color. For example, an employer may fire a white employee because he or she has a spouse of another race or associates with persons of a different color.

The Law Forbids Discrimination Based on Race and Color in Aspects of Employment Such As:

  • Hiring
  • Firing
  • Layoffs
  • Training
  • Pay

The law provides recourse for employees who are victims of discrimination based on race or color or harassment in the form of racial slurs or offensive comments. Our race and color discrimination attorneys in Mt Laurel Jersey fight for clients who have suffered discrimination at work based on race/ethnicity or skin color.
