Forms Of Race Discrimination In The Workplace

Blatant racism in the workplace still exists. There are still employees who are the target of racial epithets from co-workers and supervisors, and these employees have the right to seek compensation for the mistreatment they have encountered. However, much of the race discrimination that occurs in the workplace today is more subtle.

For example, an employee may be given the most undesirable tasks for no other reason than his or her race. Similarly, an employee may receive more intense scrutiny and disciplinary action because of his or her race, ultimately leading to wrongful termination. Cases of employees being denied promotions or raises due to their race are also far too common.

Fighting Back Against National Origin Discrimination

Just because you or members of your family come from a country other than the United States does not give your employer or co-workers the right to discriminate against you. Federal law protects employees and job applicants from discrimination based on national origin.

This kind of discrimination is not acceptable, and if you have experienced it, do not hesitate to contact a skilled and knowledgeable employment law attorney.
