Fighting Racial Discrimination In The Workplace
Federal and state law prohibits employers from discriminating against any employee or applicant for employment because of his or her race in regard to hiring, termination promotion, compensation, job training or any other term, condition or privilege of employment. It is unlawful for an employer to make business decisions based upon stereotypes and assumptions about abilities, traits or the performance of individuals simply because they are a member of a particular racial group. In addition to these prohibitions against intentional discrimination, laws prohibit employers from enacting neutral job policies that disproportionately affect people of a certain race and color if such policies are not related to the job and the needs of the business.
