Race & National Origin Discrimination

Race, ethnicity and country of origin are immutable characteristics. Individuals cannot alter the circumstances of their birth. Nor should anyone in the United States — a nation built by immigrants from all over the world — be made to feel unworthy because of those circumstances.

Race-based employment discrimination can take many forms in the workplace, from inappropriate racial remarks to offensive ethnic slurs. Firing a current employee or refusing to hire a qualified applicant due to that person’s race or color are also examples of discrimination. 

Race-based bias takes many forms at work and can affect anyone. If you believe you are being treated differently because you are not of the same race or ethnicity as your co-workers, or because of your immigrant status, we can help.
