Race and National Origin Discrimination

Color, as opposed to race, refers to the colour of one's skin. Even if the discrimination is alleged against a member of the same race, the colour of one's skin might be used as a foundation for a lawsuit. "Race" is a broad term that refers to groups of people who can be identified by their ancestry or ethnic features. On its face, "national origin" refers to "a person's birth country or, more broadly, the place from whence his or her ancestors immigrated." Employer guidelines mandating employees to use English at all times on the workplace may constitute national origin discrimination and may even create a hostile work environment for non-English speakers or workers who prefer to converse in a foreign language on the job, according to the lawsuit. Furthermore, discrimination based on a person's dialect or clothing regulations that discriminate against ethnic apparel may be grounds for a claim of national origin discrimination.

Impermissible Race/Ethnic/National Origin Discrimination

Discrimination based on race, ethnicity, or national origin refers to how someone is treated differently because of where they were born, how they look, or their ancestry. Discrimination based on race, ethnicity, and national origin frequently overlaps and has different meanings for different people.

The physical characteristics of an individual, such as skin colour, hair colour, and facial features, are referred to as race. Referring to persons as black, white, red, or yellow is an example.

Ethnicity is a term that relates to a person's cultural features. The term "national origin" refers to a person's birthplace or the birthplace of an ancestor. Physical, cultural, or linguistic features associated with a national origin group; marriage to or association with a national origin group; and/or tribe identification are all examples.
