Oakland National Origin Discrimination Lawyer

Your Employer Cannot Discriminate Against Your National Origin


National origin discrimination means treating someone less favorably because they are from a certain country or belong to a particular national origin group. A national origin group is a group of people sharing a common language, culture, ancestry, and/or other similar social characteristics.

If you are a victim of national origin discrimination or harassment, the law is on your side.

The prohibition against national origin discrimination includes discrimination against any national origin group, including larger ethnic groups (such as Hispanics or Arabs) and smaller groups (such as Kurds or Samoans). The prohibited discrimination includes discrimination based on ethnicity, physical, linguistic, or cultural traits, or even an employer’s perception that an individual is a member of a particular national origin group even if such perception is untrue (such as an employer degrading a Persian or Sikh employee for being an Arab).

If you are a victim of national origin discrimination or harassment, the law is on your side.

You can take legal action against your employer to right this wrong. Venardi Zurada LLP is a law firm serving California. We are experienced and effective attorneys who work on a contingency basis meaning that you do not pay us until we recover money for you. We offer free consultations to evaluate whether or not you have a legal claim for national origin discrimination or harassment.
