Definition of Discrimination

 RACIAL DISCRIMINATION Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits unfair treatment of employees based on such factors as their race, ethnicity, and national origin. The law applies to all racial groups. This means that employers can’t treat an individual differently because of such factors as skin color, facial features, or hair texture.

 If a company employs fifteen or more people, they must abide by the rules laid out in Title VII. An employer may not:

·  Determine whether or not to hire someone based on their race or ethnicity

·  Harass an employee due to their race or ethnicity

·  Isolate an employee or employees based on their race or ethnicity

·  Increase or decrease an employee’s pay based on their race or ethnicity

·  Demote or promote an employee based on their race or ethnicity

·  Punish an employee who reports racial discrimination

Discriminating against an employee because of a medical condition (such as sickle cell anemia) inherent in their race is also against the law. Only when a medical condition would inhibit performance of the job duties can an employer consider a person ineligible for a job.

If you believe that you are a victim of racial discrimination in the workplace and you believe that your job rights have been violated you have the right to file a charge of discrimination.  This is a required step before you are allowed to file a discrimination lawsuit.
