State & Federal Laws Protecting against Race Discrimination
Race discrimination is prohibited under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Maryland has also passed its own legislation prohibiting race discrimination at the state level.
Under both state and federal law, employers cannot refuse to hire an employee, fire someone, or limit pay, promotions, and other opportunities based on race.
Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 applies to:
- All employers with 15 or more employees
- Federal government agencies
- State government agencies
- Educational institutions
- Employment agencies
- Labor organizations
The Civil Rights Act of 1991 applies to all employers, regardless of the number of employees. Additionally, race discrimination is illegal under Maryland state law and complaints are investigated by the Maryland Commission on Civil Rights.
Examples of Racial Discrimination in the Workplace
Racial discrimination in the workplace is one of the most serious social problems that exists today. Every day, people are subjected to unfair and discriminatory treatment based on their race or ethnicity. Though many laws exist that protect employees from such discrimination, it still occurs too often in Maryland and across the country.
Examples of racial discrimination in Maryland workplaces include:
- Denying an employee a promotion or job opportunity because of their race
- Assigning less prestigious jobs, duties, or shifts to employees due to their race
- Making offensive comments or jokes about a person's race in the workplace
- Refusing to hire someone based on their race
- Disciplining minority employees more harshly
- Disparate pay for minorities
- Exclusion of minority employees
