Spotting Racial Bias in Atlantic County Work Environments

Racial discrimination can manifest in various forms, ranging from subtle to overt. Some common examples include:

  • Exclusion of candidates from consideration based solely on race or ethnic background during the recruitment process.
  • Implementation of disparate pay scales or inferior employment terms based on race.
  • Limiting access to training and advancement opportunities based on racial identity.
  • Tolerance of racially charged language, jokes, or displays by supervisors, peers, vendors, or clients.

Employers are unequivocally prohibited from making employment decisions or taking punitive measures against employees due to their race, ethnicity, or national origin. Our firm remains steadfast in its commitment to combating racial injustice in all its forms.

Illicit Racial Discrimination in Atlantic County Work Environments

Racial discrimination, including discrimination based on skin color, represents a clear violation of both federal and state laws. Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 explicitly prohibits discrimination based on race, ethnicity, national origin, and other protected categories.

It is essential to understand that Title VII applies to employers with 15 or more employees, often requiring the filing of a complaint with the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) before pursuing legal action. Our legal practitioners possess expertise in navigating administrative proceedings before the EEOC, consistently achieving favorable outcomes for our clients.

Simultaneously, we assist victims of racial bias in asserting their rights under the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination (LAD), which extends protections to employees statewide. LAD mandates that employers refrain from making employment decisions based on race and provides robust legal remedies to aggrieved individuals.

Unlike Title VII, LAD typically does not necessitate the exhaustion of administrative remedies before initiating litigation. While our primary goal is to achieve amicable resolutions in employment disputes, we are prepared to litigate in state court to secure the best outcome for our clients. Trust our seasoned racial discrimination attorneys to thoroughly evaluate your case and develop an effective legal strategy.
