All New Yorkers deserve fairness and respect, regardless of immigration status.

In New York City, it is illegal for employers, landlords, and others to discriminate against you based on your race, religious beliefs, color, age, national origin, immigration status, gender, sexual orientation, disability, marital status, and other grounds.

The New York City Human Rights law protects you from discrimination in the areas of employment, housing, and public accommodation. It also protects you from retaliation, bias-related harassment, and bias-based profiling by law enforcement.

For more information about unlawful discrimination and how you can make a complaint, visit the New York City Commission on Human Rights or call 311.
