Race Discrimination in the Workplace
It’s the 21st Century and race discrimination in the workplace should be in the distant past.
Unfortunately, it is not.
Race discrimination in the workplace is subtle and insidious and takes many shapes.
Whatever form form it takes, race discrimination is illegal. You do not need to accept it, you can fight back – with Hux Law Firm, LLC’s help.
What is Race Discrimination?
The Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits discrimination against workers based on race. Several Ohio laws – most notably Ohio Revised Code 4112.02 – also prohibit discrimination based on race.
It is unlawful to discriminate against anyone because of their race when it comes to the terms, conditions, or benefits of employment.
It is also illegal to harass an employee because of their race.
How to Know It’s Race Discrimination
Race discrimination can be difficult to detect.
If a business:
- Hires someone less qualified than you.
- Lays you off despite seniority or expertise.
- Terminates your employment despite good performance reviews.
- Pays work peers more than you.
- Promotes under qualified employees over you.
- Imposes unfair or disproportionate disciplinary action.
… because of your racial background, your rights have been violated.
