Federal And State Laws Protect Workers Against Racial Discrimination

If you feel you have been personally victimized — and your career has been derailed — by racial discrimination at your New Jersey workplace, the lawyer who has consistently achieved positive results for Union County employees for more than 30 years is Lawrence N. Lavigne, Esq., L.L.C.

Whether the race discrimination you encountered was blatant or subtle, someone needs to remind your employer, supervisor or co-worker that the practice is clearly illegal — and has been for many years. Title VII prohibits employers from punishing a worker due to his or her race or color. These traits may not be considered in any way during the formulation or execution of employment decisions.

Anti-discrimination laws protect Americans of all races — not just racial or ethnic minorities. If you have been discriminated against at work, even if it is a case of reverse discrimination, you have rights that must be protected. Lawrence N. Lavigne will protect your rights. He will put the law on your side.

Racial Discrimination Is Illegal, No Matter What Form It Takes

Discrimination can be blatant or subtle and take many forms, including:

  • Minority screening of employees and applicants
  • Dress codes
  • Background checks
  • Intelligence testing
  • English-only rules
  • Derogatory jokes
  • Harassment
  • Hostile work environment
  • Retaliation for reporting racial discrimination

If you feel that race was a factor in your failure to be hired or promoted or the reason you were fired or that it has created an unfair and hostile work environment, contact our firm.
