National Origin Discrimination
It is unlawful for an employer to discriminate on the basis of where an employee or prospective employee comes from or because of anything associated with a particular birthplace or culture.
Employers may not refuse to hire you or take adverse employment actions against you as a result of some of the following:
- Heritage or ethnic background
- Having an accent that plays no role in your job
- Involvement in a particular ethnic or cultural organization or with a person of a particular ethnic background
- The law also prohibits harassment and the creation of a hostile work environment, based on your national origin. Such conduct might include offensive remarks about a particular ethnic group or a person’s cultural habits.
Our attorneys have represented employees subjected to national origin harassment or discrimination due to denial of a position, termination from employment, or other harm to an individual’s employment because of his or her birthplace, ancestry, culture, surname or dialect.
If you would like to consult with us or have questions concerning your particular situation, please contact us to find our more about your legal rights at 703-525-4700 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
