Race, Color or National Origin Discrimination
Under Federal Civil Rights Laws, employers are prohibited from discriminating against employees on the basis of their race, color, and national origin.
Employment discrimination occurs when an employer treats employees differently or harasses them because of their race, color, or national origin. Additionally, if you have been rejected for employment, fired or otherwise harmed in the employment setting, you may also have a claim for race, color, or national origin discrimination.
The law protects against discrimination based on race, color and national origin at every step of the employment process, including during hiring, firing, promotion, salary discussions, job training, etc.
Employment decisions based on assumptions and stereotypes about certain race’s abilities, traits, or characteristics are also prohibited under the law.
