Understanding and Recognizing Workplace Race Discrimination
Although it is illegal, racial discrimination in hiring and in other employment decisions still occurs in workplaces of all sizes and across industry lines.
Examples of workplace discrimination based on race include the following:
• An employer creating a hostile work environment for one or more minority employees
• Not considering or hiring minority candidates
• Passing over minority candidates for promotions or better working conditions or assignments
• Paying minorities lower compensation than similarly qualified non-minorities
• Terminating employment or otherwise making racially based layoff decisions
• And more
Of course, not all negative employment decisions or actions are based on an employee’s or candidate’s race, but discriminatory intentions are all-too-often present. Illegal race discrimination workplace violations can also sometimes occur when an employer unintentionally engages in employment actions that disproportionately affect minority employees or candidates.
Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits employment discrimination based on someone’s race or national origin, among other reasons. State laws enacted across the country also prohibit racial discrimination. This type of discrimination case is often brought by individual victims, but can also be decided by class action lawsuit.
