Dealing with race discrimination in the workplace

Since its founding nearly 240 years ago, the United States of America has been known throughout the world as a welcoming place for immigrants to come to work, start a new life and fulfill the "American Dream." And within the United States, New York City is known as a melting pot, a place where immigrants from different countries assimilate and grow accustomed to life in the U.S. It's no coincidence that the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island are just off the shores of New York in the Hudson Bay.

And with such diversity in New York City and the surrounding area, it is not uncommon for employees of many different races and colors to work together. Ideally, employees and co-workers are always respectful and fair with people of a different race. Unfortunately, racism still exists, and on occasion it rears its ugly head in the workplace.

Federal and local laws are in place to protect all employees from discrimination on the grounds of race, age, sex and in many states, sexual orientation. It is important to always fight against discrimination, not just for the victim, but for future victims. If instances and situations of discrimination are allowed to continue, it may affect other employees down the road as well. With co-workers in different positions of power and the fear of losing one's job due to filing a complaint, a victim may be hesitant to file a report of discrimination. But victims do not need to go through the procedures alone.

For over 20 years, the team at Mitchell Pollack & Associates have been working with victims and fighting for their rights to a workplace free of race discrimination. We have offices in both Tarrytown, New York, and Mahwah, New Jersey, serving clients throughout the tri-state area with their workplace concerns. People who have been victims of workplace discrimination should understand their legal rights. Our website contains helpful information about the legal steps that a worker in this situation can take.
