Race Discrimination in the Workplace
Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits employers from discriminating against their employees based on color. While the law is clear, employers may disguise their discriminatory practices under the premise of English only requirements, dress codes, intelligence tests or criminal records. Racial harassment can also take the form of racial jokes told by coworkers.
Often workplace discrimination based on race will involve:
- Harassment due to race
- Unlawful termination because of race
- Unfair hiring or promotion based on race
- Unfair assignments based on race
