Have you suffered workplace race discrimination?
Racial discrimination is when an employer takes actions that disproportionately affect people of a particular race.Employment opportunities cannot be denied to any person because of his/her racial group or perceived racial group, his/her race-linked characteristics (e.g., hair texture, color, facial features), or because of his/her marriage to or association with someone of a particular race or color.
This means that employers cannot make employment decisions based on stereotypes and assumptions about abilities, traits, or the performance of individuals of certain racial groups.Employers may not discriminate against any individual in regard to recruiting, hiring and promotion, transfer, work assignments, performance measurements, the work environment, job training, discipline and discharge, wages and benefits, or any other term, condition, or privilege of employment.
Racial discrimination may occur in a number of ways. For example, members of a particular race may be paid less for the same amount of work, deprived of promotions, fired, or denied certain opportunities that are given to their co-workers of different races. Racial discrimination also occurs when a less qualified applicant is hired because of his or her race.
Jokes based on racial groups, stereotyping of individuals based on their ethnic backgrounds, derogatory names, as well as racial epithets can all be evidence of discrimination. Even superficially positive remarks, like “Mexicans are hard workers” or “Jews are good at managing money” tend to show discrimination at work.
