Powerful Advocates For Victims Of Racial Discrimination
Racism in the workplace cannot be tolerated. Generally, it is illegal for employers to use an employee’s race, ethnicity or national origin when making decisions about hiring, firing, promoting or demoting an employee. Racist comments, creating a hostile work environment or retaliate against an employee for complaining about racial discrimination can also constitute illegal discrimination.
Unfortunately, racial discrimination, both in the workplace and other areas of law, shows no signs of going away. If your employer has discriminated against you on the basis of race, it is critical to hire lawyers with the experience and understanding to achieve the results you expect. People across New York City and beyond have relied on the Law Offices of G. Oliver Koppell & Associates for tough, aggressive representation.
