Examples Of National Origin Discrimination

Under state and federal law, workers cannot be subjected to discrimination based on their national origin, ethnicity or perceived national origin. Examples of national origin discrimination in the workplace include:

  • English-only rules
  • Demotion or job denial because the applicant has an accent
  • Failure to interview applicants based on last name or national origin
  • Pay gap on the basis of national origin
  • Physical or verbal abuse based on one’s country of origin
  • Discrimination based on marriage to someone of a different national origin
  • Discrimination based on association with individuals of a different national origin
  • A combination of religious discrimination and nationality discrimination

Employees in California are protected by the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and other state and federal employment laws. Attorney Miguel S. Ramirez has nearly 20 years of legal experience, including a background in employer defense. He can explain how these laws protect you and suggest a course of legal action based on the specific circumstances of your case.
