Race, Color, Religion, and National Origin Discrimination
It is unlawful for an employer to discriminate against a job applicant or employee based on their race, color, religion or national origin.
Race/Color: Race discrimination involves treating an employee or job applicant someone unfavorably because of their race or because of personal characteristics associated with race (such as hair texture, skin color, or certain facial features). Color discrimination involves treating someone unfavorably because of skin color complexion. Race/color discrimination also can involve treating someone unfavorably because the person is married to or associated with a person of a certain race or color. Examples of race/color discrimination can include: disparate pay, benefits and hours, assignments, responsibilities, training, promotions, performance review, discipline, and unfair termination.
Religion: Religious discrimination involves treating a employees or job applicants unfavorably because of their religious beliefs. The law protects not only people who belong to traditional, organized religions, as well as others who have sincerely held religious, ethical or moral beliefs. Religious discrimination can also involve treating someone differently because that person is married to (or associated with) an individual of a particular religion.
National Origin: National origin discrimination involves treating employees or job applicants unfavorably because they are from a particular country or part of the world, because of ethnicity or accent, or because they appear to be of a certain ethnic background. National origin discrimination can also involve treating employees or applicants unfavorably because they are married to (or associated with) a person of a certain national origin. Examples of national origin discrimination can include: disparate pay, benefits and hours, assignments, responsibilities, training, promotions, performance review, discipline, and unfair termination.
