Race and National Origin
Racial DiscriminationIt is illegal under both Federal and State Law to discriminate in the "terms or conditions of employment" on the basis of a person's race, color, national origin, or ethnicity.
"Terms or conditions of employment” mean just about anything relating to someone's job: their position, pay, title, hours, vacations, most everything being a term or condition of employment. Whether or not a person is hired is also considered a term or condition of employment.
Race is generally defined as a person's ancestry or ethnic characteristics, which includes accents and cultural attire.
