What Is Racial Discrimination?

Racial discrimination is the unfair or prejudiced treatment of an employee based on their race or ethnicity. This type of discrimination can occur in various employment practices, including hiring, firing, promotions, compensation, and other benefits of employment.

Some examples of racial discrimination include:

  • Refusing to hire or promote an employee because of their race
  • Demoting or terminating an employee because of their race
  • Denying a pay increase or other benefits because of an employee’s race
  • Assigning an employee to a less desirable job because of their race
  • Requiring an employee to work in a segregated area of the workplace because of their race
  • Subjecting an employee to racial slurs, epithets, or other offensive comments

These are just a few examples of what can be considered racial discrimination. If you believe you are being treated unfairly because of your race, you should consult with an experienced  attorney in CA. Our firm can help you understand your rights and options.

Is Racial Discrimination Illegal?

Yes, racial discrimination is illegal. Both federal and California state laws prohibit racial discrimination in the workplace.

Under federal law, employers with 15 or more employees cannot discriminate against employees based on their race or ethnicity. 

Under California law, employers with 5 or more employees cannot discriminate against employees based on their race or ethnicity. 

California law also prohibits racial discrimination by employers with fewer than 5 employees. However, the only remedy for employees of these small employers is to file a claim with the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH).

For larger employers, employees who have been victims of racial discrimination can file a lawsuit against their employer. 

What Are the Signs of Racial Discrimination?

Racial discrimination can be difficult to prove. However, there are often warning signs of racial discrimination.

These signs may include:

  • Being treated differently than employees of other races
  • Receiving poor performance evaluations for no apparent reason
  • Being denied a promotion or pay increase that you deserve
  • Being subjected to offensive comments or slurs about your race
  • Being given a less desirable job assignment
  • Being terminated or demoted after complaining about racial discrimination

How to Prove Racial Discrimination

Proving racial discrimination can be challenging. However, there are several types of evidence that can be used to support your claim.

Some of the most common types of evidence in racial discrimination claims include:

  • Direct evidence
  • Circumstantial evidence
  • Comparative evidence
  • Pretext evidence
  • Statistical evidence
  • Witness testimony
