Employment law protections for workers in New York

When lawmakers in New York passed the state's Human Rights Law, they extended workplace protections provided by the Civil Rights Act and the Age Discrimination in Employment Act. While workers across the United States are protected against harassment or discrimination in the workplace based on their gender, age, race, religion or national origin, employees in the Empire State are also protected against unfair treatment based on such factors as their criminal arrest record, military status, sexual orientation, marriage status and domestic violence victim status.

Workers experience extensive racism in the workplace

According to a recent study about diversity and inclusion in the workplace, a third of employed adults in New York and other states have personally experienced or witnessed racism in the workplace. Large companies have advertised their efforts to improve this problem over the past decade, but more than half of corporate employees still say that their employers can do more to reduce discrimination.
