Protecting You Against Employment Discrimination
When it comes to racial discrimination, there are two essential federal laws that protect employees – Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act and 42 U.S.C. 1981. Although these two statutes are similar, they have their own unique distinctions that keep them separate.
Here is what you need to know about Section 1981:
- An EEOC charge does not have to be filed when pursuing a discrimination case under Section 1981
- Section 1981 has a longer statute of limitations than Title VII
- Damages are not capped under Section 1981
- Section 1981 only applies to race discrimination while Title VII protects
- Against religious discrimination, sex discrimination, and more.
Regardless of the type of case you have, you can rely on our legal team to work tirelessly on your behalf to secure the best possible outcome for your case.
We handle all manner of employment discrimination matters, including cases that involve discrimination based on:
- Marital status

Many cities also have their own laws that provide additional protections. For example, in New York City, it is illegal for employers to discriminate based on a person’s credit history and the New York City Human Rights Law makes it clear that independent contractors have the same anti-discrimination protections as other employees. It is one of the most extensive workplace anti-discrimination laws in the United States.
