Racial discrimination harassment , New Jersey
Employment Lawyer: Loren, Lawyer replied 3 years ago
Deciding an issue that had divided the Federal Appellate Courts, the U.S. Supreme Court recently ruled that the four-year statute of limitations enacted by Congress in 1990 applies to claims of racial discrimination and harassment brought under the Civil Rights Act of 1866, a statute commonly known as Section 1981. 42 U.S.C.
