Section 1981 Claims

The old Civil Rights law, passed during the post-Civil War era [42 USC § 1981] prohibits discrimination upon the basis of race in making and enforcing contracts. This has provided a cognizable cause of action for independent contractors involving their contractual relations with employers. (See Danco v. Wal-Mart Stores, 1st Circuit, 1999.)
