New York Civil Rights Violation Lawyer Investigates Racial Discrimination Complaint Against ‘Real Housewives’ Spa Owner


New York civil rights lawyer David Perecman comments on the accusation of racial discrimination against Real Housewives of New York City" cast member Cindy Barshop, owner of "Completely Bare" spas.

According to the civil rights violation lawsuit, the former employee, the only black beautician at the store, claimed she was bullied and fired because she is black.

Altovise Collier, the 25-year-old aesthetician who filed the civil rights violation lawsuit in New York, said other employees were “very impressed” with her until they saw her. Collier also claimed that she was underpaid, treated unfairly, and verbally harassed.

Allegedly, Collier was fired shortly after she complained about the racial discrimination directly to Barshop.

Said New York civil rights violation lawyer Perecman, “It is extremely rare for an employer who discriminates to directly admit that race is a factor in their employment decision. Race discrimination in the workplace must often be proven circumstantially. Because this civil rights violation can be difficult to prove, it is important to have a New York civil rights violation lawyer who thoroughly understands race discrimination law as it pertains to the workplace.”
