Employment Discrimination Based on Race and Ethnicity is Illegal
The law prohibits discrimination based on race and ethnicity. Whether you are Hispanic, African American, American Indian, Asian, Korean, Vietnamese, Filipino, or of any other race or ethnicity, you are entitled to be treated fairly in the workplace. Your race or ethnic background cannot be used by an employer to make any employment decision, including recruitment, hiring, promotions, duties, firing, or layoffs.
