Employment Discrimination

Discrimination based on national origin or ethnicity is illegal

National origin discrimination exists when an employee is treated less favorably because he or she comes from a particular place, because of his or her ethnicity or accent, or because it is believed that he or she has a particular ethnic background.

Title VII and Ohio law prohibit employers from taking adverse employment action against employees because of their national origin or ethnicity.  If an employer takes an adverse employment action based on an employee’s national origin or ethnicity—rather than the merits of his or her work—the employer could have liability for national origin discrimination.

If you have been subjected to an adverse employment action or wrongfully terminated due to your national origin, contact our office for a consultation to discuss your rights.
