The Powell Law Firm represents individuals who believe that they have been discriminated against because of their national origin. National origin discrimination involves unfavorable treatment of applicants or employees because of their country of origin, ethnicity (actual or perceived), or accent. It can also involve discrimination against someone who is associated with a person or group of persons – or married to a person – of a certain ethnicity.
Employers may not use a person’s national origin to make adverse personnel decisions with respect to any term or condition of employment, including decisions based on hiring, termination, compensation, benefits, promotions, and training. Moreover, the law prohibits workplace harassment based on national origin. Adverse conduct based on an employee’s national origin becomes legally actionable if it creates a hostile work environment or results in an adverse personnel decision, such as termination or demotion.
