It is also illegal for employers to create or tolerate a hostile work environment based on national origin or race. Racial or ethnic slurs, jokes, insults, graffiti or other comments or conduct based on an employee’s national origin may further constitute unlawful harassment.

Do you have an Employment Discrimination case based on your national origin?

Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color and national origin. Just a few examples of potential Title VII violations include an employer who:

  • refuses to hire an applicant because the applicant’s ancestry is Mexican, Ethiopian, Russian, etc.;
  • allows co-workers to make ethnic slurs that create a hostile work environment for employees of a certain national origin;
  • discriminates against an employee because of the employee’s accent even though it does not interfere with job performance; and
  • terminates an employee because the employee is not a U.S. citizen, even though the employee is authorized to work in the United States.
