How Can Discrimination Occur?
Employers who discriminate will often hide their unlawful behavior by claiming to offer help or improvements to the lives of their employees. Under no circumstances is it legal for an employer to treat a person differently due to their race, religion, or nationality.
You may be a victim of discrimination if you were:
- Passed over for a promotion you were due
- Harshly disciplined or wrongfully fired for typical behavior
- Not hired despite being completely qualified
- Questioned, then mistreated for your religious beliefs
- Harassed outright due to appearance, religion, or nationality
Nationality Discrimination & the Law
Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits employment discrimination based on nationality, race, and religion on a federal level. Additionally, the Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) outlines that so long as a person is willing and able to competently fulfill their job duties, they should maintain their employment
