Racial discrimination in the workforce can take many forms. Some may be subtle and you may not even realize it’s happening, while other situations can be more apparent. Common racial discrimination scenarios in the labor force include:
rejecting to hire someone
who is more qualified and proficient to perform a job than the other candidates who applied because of conceived notions about that person’s race.
Paying an employee less
than others who are performing the same job, due to their race and without regard to their education, skill level or experience.
Not offering an employee the same promotions or benefits
as other employees, because of their race and without consideration of their performance.
Penalizing or letting go of an employee
without sufficient reasoning, and instead as an act of discriminatory action to get rid of them.
