National Origin Discrimination

 

National origin discrimination occurs when an employer treats an employee or applicant unfavorably because they are from a particular country or part of the world, because of their ethnicity or accent, or because they appear to be a certain ethnic background.

National origin discrimination can also occur when an employer treats an employee or applicant unfavorably because they are married to a person of a certain national origin or because of their connection with an ethnic organization or group. It is also unlawful to harass a person because of his or her national origin.
