National Origin Discrimination

Title VII states that employees are entitled to the same employment opportunities as anyone else irrespective your (or your ancestors) national origin

You cannot be denied equal employment opportunity because of your birthplace, ancestry, culture, or linguistic characteristics closely associated with an ethnic group nor can equal employment opportunity be denied because of marriage or association with persons of a national origin group; membership or association with specific ethnic promotion groups; attendance or participation in schools, churches, temples or mosques generally associated with a national origin group; or a surname associated with a national origin group.

Title VII prohibits employment decisions, including those involving recruitment, hiring, promotion, segregation, and firing or layoffs, that have the purpose or effect of discriminating based on national origin.

Title VII further prohibits national origin harassment when it is so severe or pervasive that it creates a hostile work environment. Employers are required to take appropriate steps to prevent and correct unlawful harassment. Likewise, employees are responsible for reporting harassment at an early stage to prevent its escalation.
