National Origin Harassment or Discrimination can occur whether a person is actually from another country, or whether they are simply believed to be a member of such a group. National Origin Harassment also includes harassment because of a person’s accent or linguistic difficulties.
National Origin Harassment
National Origin Harassment, like other forms of Harassment, generally occurs when an employer creates or knowingly allows the existence of a hostile, offensive, abusive, or intimidating work environment to exist which negatively affects an employee’s ability to perform their work. In the case of National Origin Harassment, this negative treatment is because of the employee’s National Origin – whether it is because the employee is from another country, or even the United States.
National Origin Discrimination
National Origin Discrimination takes a variety of forms, but generally involves an employee being subjected to negative treatment in the workplace because of their National Origin. This treatment ranges from disciplinary action, negative performance reviews, denial of training, denial of promotions, denial of raises, and termination.
