The Sanders Firm P.C., which is headquartered in New York City, represents those who have faced color discrimination when seeking employment or when employed. Color discrimination is a serious issue in any part of the United States, but in New York City, which is the financial center of the world and one of America’s most robust cities, it is especially worrisome. The workforce in New York is composed of people from every part of the globe and of every color. Thus, color discrimination can be a very real problem for those seeking employment.
As the world economy changes and New York continues to be a vital part of that change, it is expected that the City will continue to be a place that is home to an extremely diverse population. In many ways, New York is ideally situated as in today’s world as owners, customers and various stakeholders in corporations require that a diverse staff of employees be hired. In this context, The Sanders Firm, P.C. is available to advise and represent employees and job applicants alleging color discrimination in employment. This includes discrimination due to national origin, citizenship and immigration status, which are variants of race discrimination.
Those filing a claim for color discrimination will often do so under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the NYSHRL, and NYCHRL. In some cases, the Civil Rights Act of 1866, 42 U.S.C. §1981 and/or Civil Rights Act of 1871, 42 U.S.C. § 1983 may also be utilized.
