Skin Color Discrimination and Harassment
Labor & Employment Law
Skin Color Discrimination in Florida
The Sass Law Firm represents employees in skin color discrimination cases in both federal and state courts. Federal and state laws protect employees not only from racial discrimination, but also from discrimination based upon the color of their skin. For example, if an employer treats people with darker skin less favorably than those with lighter skin, it is unlawful regardless of the race of the darker and lighter skinned employees. If you feel you have been discriminated against because of the color of your skin, including being subjected to a hostile work environment, please call the Sass Law Firm to schedule a consultation to learn more about your rights and potential remedies. Skin color discrimination is against the law.
Skin Color Harassment and Hostile Work Environment
The federal and state laws against treating employees differently with regard to the terms, conditions and privileges of employment based upon the color of their skin also make it illegal to subject employees to harassment because of their skin color. For example, if you are frequently subjected to negative comments regarding your skin color by co-workers or supervisors, it could be considered unlawful harassment or creating a hostile work environment. If you feel you are being harassed because of the color of your skin, and need assistance with seeking internal remedies and/or legal remedies if the harassment as to skin color does not stop, please call the Sass Law Firm to schedule a consultation to learn more about your rights. Harassment based on skin color is against the law.
Additionally, if you are retaliated against for complaining about the harassment or discrimination, please call the Sass Law Firm to schedule a consultation to learn more about your rights and potential remedies. Retaliation is against the law.
