Examples of Racial Discrimination

Sometimes racial discrimination is obvious, like when a coworker, manager, or supervisor uses racial slurs or epithets. But racial discrimination can also be more subtle, like when an employment practice looks neutral on its face but has the effect of discriminating based on race.

Ohio laws and Title VII of the federal Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibit discrimination on the basis of a person’s race or skin color. Despite laws that clearly prohibit discrimination based on race, some employers continue to violate state and federal laws by making decisions based on the color of a worker’s skin.

Examples of racial discrimination include:

  • Refusing to hire a person because of their race
  • Disciplining a person of color more severely than a white coworker for the same conduct
  • Holding employees of color to a higher standard than their white coworkers
  • Denying employees of color the same training, necessary equipment, or benefits that are provided to white coworkers
  • Giving people of color more challenging work assignments than their white coworkers
  • Paying employees of color less than their white coworkers for the same job
  • Giving promotions to less-qualified candidates instead of a more-qualified candidate of color
