NYC Race and National Origin Discrimination Attorneys

Race discrimination occurs in numerous situations in the workplace, such as the decision to not hire someone, the failure to offer promotions.
Just as with discrimination based on skin tone, it is illegal to treat someone poorly in the workplace because they were born in a different country.
