Exposing Racial Discrimination and Harassment in the Workplace
Employers must follow the law, and you cannot be demoted, fired or have your hours reduced because of your race or in retaliation for complaining about racial harassment or discrimination. If you feel as though you are being treated differently because of your race or national origin, you may be able to file a lawsuit. Racial discrimination and harassment can be seen in a number of ways, including situations such as:
- Pay differential because of race
- Employees treated unfairly because of race
- Promotions/raises being denied because of race
- Being demoted or fired because of race issues
- Racial slurs or offensive comments regarding race
