TROY LAW: Racial Discrimination

Disparate treatment on the basis of race is prohibited by 42 U.S.C. Section 1981 of the Civil Rights Act of 1866 and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 as well as New York State and City Human Rights Laws.

Racially disparate treatment in the workplace can take many forms, including:

  • refusing to hire a job candidate due to perceived race;
  • firing an employee due to perceived race;
  • lower pay (including employee benefits) given similar working experience;
  • difference in promotion (demotion) given similar performance;
  • unreasonable restrictions on the performance of job assignments on the basis of race;
  • abusive/ hostile working conditions created by severe or frequent racial slurs or racially abusive conduct.
