Racial Discrimination

Thanks to civil rights actions of the past, it is against the law for any person to be denied employment, public accommodations or housing because of race, color or national origin. In New Jersey, the Division of Civil Rights has the authority to investigate complaints of racial discrimination.

The New Jersey Law against Discrimination protects people against racial discrimination when applying for a job, during employment and at termination of their employment. According to the Law, people, regardless of race, cannot be denied job opportunities or membership in unions nor can they be kept out of job training or apprenticeship programs.

This Law also pertains to the use of public accommodations, such as restaurants, hotels, camps, shops, public transportation, banks, entertainment centers, and government or public offices. A person may not be denied service, required to pay a higher rate, or turned down or harassed when using such facilities. Likewise, a person cannot be prevented from buying, selling or leasing property, or furnishings or services related to that property, because of color, race or national origin. In New Jersey it is even against the law for a newspaper to merely publish an advertisement that may include limitations or suggest discrimination in regards to selling, renting or leasing property.

Many racial discrimination complaints deal not with denial, but with treatment on the job or in housing situations. The Law also covers such situations as being denied promotions and other employment benefits, or being harassed verbally or physically on the job, in school, or in housing situations, when such denials or harassments are committed because of a person’s race.

If you believe you or a loved one is the victim of racial discrimination, you have the right to report the discrimination and have your complaint investigated without retaliation. Because racial discrimination is against the law, you should utilize the services of an experienced attorney. If you have been subject to discriminatory actions against you, contact Rotolo Karch Law to receive advice. Protect your rights. Call Rotolo Karch Law today.

The absolute BEST!!! I have a family of attorneys but needed someone local. Victor was recommended to me and words cannot describe how pleased I was with his firm. The outstanding service and attention each member of his staff gave to me surpassed any and all expectations. Victor surrounds himself with a hardworking team that he leads. I felt it was money spent wisely. I will continue to recommend Victor and his associates.

I am an attorney and have practiced law for 26 years. I hired Vic to handle a very difficult family matter because I do not handle family law. Vic was extremely competent and obtained a result far beyond my expectations. Without his counsel my son's and family's life would have been changed forever. Thank you Vic for your good lawyering. I very much appreciate the personal attention and time dedicated to this matter. I highly recommend Vic.

We recently had a situation where we needed to hire an attorney. We selected Rotolo Law Firm and I can honestly say that we were above and beyond satisfied with Vic and his team. We would absolutely recommend this firm to anyone should the need arise. We blindly picked the firm out of the phone book because I liked his ad. Now I believe that God was pointing us in the right direction. Thank you Vic and the Rotolo Law Firm for being there for us in our time of need.

Victor's expertise, due diligence, and empathy for his client made my first experience with the law (and last) a non-stressful one. Before the case, I did my research and looked over about 20 lawyers before choosing Victor. All my sources pointed to him as the best and they weren't off even a bit. Victor treated my case like it was his own and kept me up to date with all my appointments, breakthroughs in the case, and guided me step through step in a process that I never thought that I had to come to endure. If Victor's not available Susy will go out of her way to take care you. The productivity and efficiency in that office is second to none. Thank you Victor!
