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
  • Job assignments
  • Promotions
  • Harassment
  • Other terms and conditions of employment

"I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character."

- Martin Luther King, Jr.

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.
