What Is Racial Discrimination?
Racial discrimination takes place when an employer acts negatively toward an employee due to their race or traits linked to their race. It's against the law for employers to discriminate against employees based on their association, either through marriage or other ties, with individuals of a specific race, or due to their participation in a group or organization centered around race.
Employers are also forbidden from making employment-related decisions based on physical attributes typically associated with a certain race. For instance, it would be unlawful for an employer to reject a candidate due to their 'ethnic' hairstyle or specific skin tone.
Racial Discrimination and Hostile Work Environment
Employers can also potentially face legal repercussions for racial discrimination if they foster a hostile work environment rooted in an employee's race. A hostile work environment is characterized by severe or pervasive conditions that significantly impact employment and give rise to an abusive atmosphere.
For instance, if an employer permits derogatory remarks about an employee's race from colleagues or allows the display of racially offensive symbols or images, they may be held accountable for creating a hostile work environment.
