How We Protect You

National origin discrimination can take many forms, and our discrimination lawyers handle many areas of national origin discrimination-related protections, including:

  • Employment decisions: Employment decisions, including recruitment, hiring, and firing or layoffs, based on national origin are prohibited.
  • Harassment: Offensive conduct, such as ethnic slurs, that creates a hostile work environment based on national origin are prohibited. Employers are required to take appropriate steps to prevent and correct unlawful harassment. Likewise, employees are responsible for reporting harassment at an early stage to prevent its escalation.
  • Language
  • Accent discrimination: Race or color discrimination may not be the basis for differences in pay or benefits, work assignments, performance evaluations, training, discipline or discharge, or any other area of employment.
  • English fluency: A fluency requirement is only permissible if required for the effective performance of the position for which it is imposed.
  • English-only rules: English-only rules must be adopted for nondiscriminatory reasons. An English-only rule may be used if it is needed to promote the safe or efficient operation of the employer’s business.
