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.

Effects of Racial and Ethnic Discrimination on the Job
Racial and ethnic discrimination in the workplace can have profound and far-reaching effects on employees. Here are some of the common consequences:
Emotional and Psychological Distress: Discrimination can lead to profound emotional and psychological distress for victims. The constant stress of facing bias, harassment, or unfair treatment can take a toll on an individual’s mental health, leading to anxiety, depression, and even post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
Career Stagnation: Discrimination can hinder career advancement opportunities for victims. Qualified employees may find themselves overlooked for promotions or important projects solely because of their race or ethnicity, which can lead to a stagnant career trajectory.
Hostile Work Environment: Racial discrimination often creates a hostile work environment where victims feel isolated, threatened, or demeaned. This can make it challenging to perform daily tasks and can lead to a toxic workplace culture.
Financial Impact: Discrimination can also result in financial losses. Unfair treatment may lead to missed opportunities for bonuses, pay raises, or other benefits that are crucial for financial stability.
