New York Workplace Discrimination Lawyer Investigates Complaint of Racial Discrimination at Brooklyn Botanic Garden


New York workplace discrimination lawyer David Perecman comments on a former Brooklyn Botanic Garden employee's complaint of racial discrimination at Brooklyn Botanic Garden.

In his civil rights violation lawsuit, 47 year old Anthony Quarless alleged race and age discrimination. Apparently Quarless, the former head of security, was pressured to hire a white assistant over an equally qualified and more experienced black applicant. He was also only allowed to investigate crimes committed by minority workers, and he was forced to punish a black employee more harshly than a white one.

“The rule in employee discipline must always be ‘consistency,’” said New York civil rights violation lawyer Perecman. “Managers need to dole out discipline in equal amounts for equal behaviors or risk discrimination claims.”

In New York, workplace discrimination law is designed to protect employees from race and age discrimination. All employees, regardless of color, are entitled to equal rights and equal protection against race discrimination and age discrimination at work.

If an individual believes that he or she may be the victim of race discrimination or age discrimination, they should contact an experienced New York civil rights violation lawyer at The Perecman Firm.
