Fighting back against national origin discrimination

Despite laws aimed at preventing workplace discrimination, it is an unfortunate fact that such discrimination is still an issue in many workplaces in Washington, D.C. Recently, a previous post here discussed discrimination in the workplace based on national origin. Workplace discrimination based on national origin has been against the law since the passage of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. After all, a person's birthplace, culture or the language he or she speaks should never factor into how that person is treated while on-the-job.

National origin discrimination can take a number of forms. For example, treating an employee unequally compared to other employees in the workplace based on that employee's national origin is illegal. In addition, harassment, racial slurs and stereotyping are three other forms of national origin discrimination. Employees born in another country could be subject to national origin discrimination. However, even employees born in the United States could be subject to national origin discrimination as well, simply due to their heritage.

The law firm of Alan Lescht & Associates, P.C., advocates for the rights of employees across Washington, D.C., who have experienced discrimination based on their national origin or ethnicity. Attorney Alan Lescht has represented employees in the private sector as well as federal employees, and he has an extensive familiarity with the various laws under which an employee can pursue legal action.

If an employee is discriminated against based on national origin, legal options may be available. The national origin discrimination page of our website may be a good resource for employees who believe they have been discriminated against.
