Is your employer, boss, supervisor or manager treating you differently because he or she does not like where you are from? Did your employer fire you because of where you are from? Did it fire you and replace you with someone of a different national origin? Have your co-workers harassed you because of your national origin?
If so, you may have rights that have been violated under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
Unlawful Practices Under Title VII
Title VII states:
"It shall be an unlawful employment practice for an employer -
(1) to fail or refuse to hire or to discharge any individual, or otherwise to discriminate against any individual with respect to his compensation, terms, conditions, or privileges of employment, because of such individual's race, color, religion, sex, or national origin; or
(2) to limit, segregate, or classify his employees or applicants for employment in any way which would deprive or tend to deprive any individual of employment opportunities or otherwise adversely affect his status as an employee, because of such individual's race, color, religion, sex, or national origin."
If you believe that you may have been treated differently because of your national origin, please contact a national origin lawyer at Weiner & Sand LLC to discuss your rights.
