Race discrimination occurs when a person is treated differently or less favorably because of their race, color, ethnicity, or national origin. Decisions made on the basis of race in regards to hiring, firing, pay, job assignments, promotions, training, benefits, layoffs, and any other terms, conditions, and privileges of employment are illegal.
Under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, employers are prohibited from discriminating against job applicants and employees based on race, color, ethnicity, or national origin. Harassment about race is also illegal. This harassment can include racial slurs, jokes, and situations that create an intimidating, offensive, or hostile work environment.
