Discrimination on the basis of national origin can be a problem in our society and in the workplace at any time. In a time of war, the problem of national origin discrimination can be escalated, so that people from certain countries or parts of the world are particularly singled out for unfair treatment and/or denied the rights they have under the law, which include prohibitions against harassment on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability, or age. These rights are extended to all persons in the United States, regardless of their national origin.
Title VII of the Civil Rights Act (1964) prohibits:
Employment decisions based on stereotypes or assumptions about the abilities, traits, or performance of individuals of a certain sex, race, age, religion, or ethnic group, or individuals with disabilities.
Denying employment opportunities to a person because of marriage to, or association with, an individual of a particular race, religion, national origin, or an individual with a disability.
Discrimination because of participation in schools or places of worship associated with a particular racial, ethnic, or religious group.
