Despite Progress, Race Discrimination Still Persists In Workplaces
The United States has come a long way in making racial equality a reality. This includes anti-discrimination laws in the workplace. Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 states that employers may not discriminate against an employee due to that employee’s race. However, racial discrimination at work continues to be a problem.
If you have been the victim of discrimination or harassment at work because of your race, it is important to understand that you have legal rights. The federal Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) and the Pennsylvania Human Relations Act both enforce Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. However, victimized employees must first prove their claims, and this is where Krevsky Bowser can help.
