How does race discrimination differ from color discrimination?

Residents of New York, whether they work in a factory, at a construction site or in an office, deserve to be treated fairly in the workplace.

However, there is a difference between discrimination based on a person's race and discrimination based on a person's color.

It is sometimes the case that after many years of hard work and dedication, an employee in New York can find themselves fired for reasons that are not their fault.

If so, the employer can fire a worker for any reason, so long as it is not an unlawful reason, such as discrimination or retaliation.

Americans throughout the United States, including the New York tri-state area, have various protections in the workplace.
