Race Discrimination Lawyers Can Help

While we’ve come a long way with racial equality in our country, race discrimination and harassment are unfortunately far too common in American workplaces. Before filing a complaint against your employer, it’s important to first understand exactly what racial discrimination is, what your rights are, and how a race discrimination attorney can help.

What is race discrimination?

Race discrimination in the workplace is defined as any act covered by the 1964 Civil Rights Act and the 2010 Equality Act that involves treating someone unfavorably due to their race and/or color complexion. In Massachusetts, anti-discrimination is protected by law Chapter 151B, prohibiting employers from discriminating on the basis of age, sex, religion, race, and more.
