Race Discrimination in the Workplace
How to Identify Racial Discrimination?
Racial discrimination is discrimination based on an individual’s race. If a person is treated differently based on the race they belong to, then race discrimination is in business. Color discrimination is also included in racial discrimination and is a crime under the anti-discrimination laws.
Racial discrimination can be obvious in many types. Like, if a person of a certain race is targeted with racial slurs or has to work in an offensive work environment just because he belongs to a certain race. Also, if that person has been isolated by a group of people who belong to another race.
