National Origin Discrimination Lawyer Serving San Antonio
National Origin discrimination is not necessarily the same as race discrimination. National Origin discrimination is when an employer discriminates against an employee because the employee is from a particular place, because of the employee's ethnicity, or because the employee has a particular accent. An employer also may not discriminate against an employee because the employee is married to someone of a particular nationality.
Discrimination occurs in numerous ways. For example, discrimination often occurs when employers hire, fire, layoff, or promote employees. Discrimination may also occur when an employer alters any other term and condition of employment.
