What Counts as National Origin Discrimination?

A particular accent can be an indicator of the origin of a person, and it is a common reason for employers to refuse to hire or to discharge individuals. Another basis of employment discrimination is affiliation, usually characterized by a person's marriage to a member of a national origin group and/or one's involvement in schools and places of worship.

In the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Title VII states that national origin discrimination is: "to fail or refuse to hire or to discharge any individual, or otherwise to discriminate against any individual with respect to his compensation, terms, conditions, or privileges of employment, because of such individual's race, color, religion, sex, or national origin" (SEC. 2000e-2. [Section 703]). The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) expands the definition to encompass accent, affiliation, alienage (alien status), ancestry, appearance or because a person has the physical, cultural or linguistic characteristics of a national origin group.

How should I be considered for a potential job?

Under Title VII, it is illegal for employers to make their hiring decisions based on a bias or discrimination. The qualifications and performance of an individual are the correct criteria for hiring, promoting, demoting or terminating. Although the EEOC does not mention a country of origin as protected, various other federal statutes see discrimination against citizenship as a violation of national origin discrimination laws.
