Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits racial discrimination or any other type of discrimination in the workplace. Under Title VII, discrimination on the basis of national origin, physical characteristics (such as color or features associated with a certain race) and culture are all considered race discrimination.
Unfair treatment in the workplace based upon race can include:
- Racial harassment such as racial slurs, racial jokes or other prejudicial conduct that creates a hostile work environment
- Hiring processes that incorporate racial stereotypes
- Unfair selection of employees for demotion or termination
- Precluding employees from promotion on the basis of race
- Requiring or only allowing employees of certain races to work overtime
- Compensation based on race
- Wrongful termination and other retaliation for those who report racial discrimination
Unfair treatment in the workplace on the basis of race is a type of racial discrimination that is called disparate-treatment. The other type of racial discrimination, disparate-impact discrimination, occurs when a company policy discriminates against or has a significant negative impact on a particular race or protected group. Regardless of the type of discrimination that you have experienced, we can help you understand your rights and options for taking action.
