This means that:
Harassment on the basis of a protected class (above, such as sexual harassment), and retaliation for filing a complaint or being involved in the investigation are both prohibited under law and enforced by MCCR.
Additionally, the CROWN Act (Chapters 473 & 474 of 2020) added to existing state law that race discrimination includes traits associated with race, such as hair texture, afro hairstyles, and protective hairstyles.
If you believe that actions have been taken against you based on a discriminatory animus, it is imperative that you contact our agency immediately to initiate an inquiry so that we can assist you in determining if you have been a victim of employment discrimination. Our trained Intake Staff will guide you through the intake process and, through a series of questions and interviews, help you analyze your situation to determine if the actions taken against you meet the threshold of being considered discriminatory.
For deaf and hard of hearing individuals as well as those with limited English proficiency, MCCR provides Video Remote Interpreting (VRI) services free of charge to you upon request.
