Race/Color Discrimination in the Workplace
Race discrimination in the workplace involves treating an applicant or employee unfavorably due to the their race or the color of their skin.
Additionally, this type of discrimination also includes a situation where a person is being treated unfavorably because they are married to a person of a certain race or skin color.
The law strictly forbids race/color discrimination in any aspect of employment, including: hiring, firing, job responsibilities, pay, layoff, promotions, benefits, and training.
It is against the law to harass an applicant or employee because of their race or skin color.
Harassment is a broad term that covers a variety of situations. For example, this could include a racial slur or making derogatory remarks.
The harasser can be a victim’s boss, coworker, or somebody who is not employed by the company, such as a customer.
