Definition of Discrimination


 REVERSE DISCRIMINATION A new form of discrimination now seems to exist in the workplace. Reverse discrimination is a term that describes laws and policies that favor certain minority groups, whether racial or sexual, over another group historically seen as more dominant, such as white males. In these cases, employers do not take into account the actual qualifications of a potential employee, only the race or sex.

This results in the overlooking of qualified applicants that apply for certain positions, promotions, and even higher education due to their race, which Title VII of the Civil Rights Act prohibits. According to Title VII, it is unlawful to discriminate against an employee because of ethnicity, religion, sex, or race. This includes non-minorities.

Many believe that “Affirmative Action” is a form of reverse discrimination, as it gives preferential treatment to individuals based on their race. This is a form of racial discrimination, and according to the law, affected employees, regardless of their race or gender, need protection from unfair treatment.

Although it is not common, reports indicate that non-minorities file at least 20% of the discrimination complaints.

If you truly believe that you are a victim of reverse 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.  Click here to get help now.  You may deserve compensation.
