What Is Racial Discrimination?
Racial discrimination occurs when an employer treats an employee or job applicant unfavorably because of their race or personal characteristics associated with their race. It is also illegal for employers to discriminate against employees based on their association with someone of a particular race or because they are married to or associated with someone of a particular race.
Racial discrimination can occur in any aspect of employment, including:
- Recruiting and hiring
- Job assignments
- Pay and benefits
- Discipline and promotions
- Training and apprenticeship programs
- Layoffs and firing
It is important to note that racial discrimination is not limited to employers. It is also illegal for labor organizations, employment agencies, and other entities to discriminate against employees or job applicants based on their race.
