What is national origin discrimination?

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission defines national origin discrimination as the act of an employer, or future employer, to judge you by the country in which you were born or that your family may have originally come from. For example, your grandparents immigrated to the U.S. from an Asian country. You work for a company where the manager dislikes Chinese people and often makes derogatory remarks about them. Over time, you accumulate experience and knowledge that would normally make you a candidate for a promotion. Additionally, you are the most qualified candidate, but you are passed over for someone less skilled who is not of Asian ancestry. This may be considered discrimination by national origin.

Men can be victims of sexual harassment at work

Not all claims of sexual harassment in the workplace come from women. The number of men who have reported incidents of being harassed while on-the-job in Minnesota and across the country has risen substantially over the past decade, according to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. In fact, the EEOC reported that approximately one-third of working males have filed complaints of unwanted sexual advances and comments in the workplace within the last year. Although most of the studies surrounding sexual harassment at work have focused on women victims, researchers have turned their sights on the growing number of males who have been victimized as well.
