What is citizenship status discrimination?

People from diverse backgrounds encounter discrimination in the workplace for all sorts of reasons. In some cases, employees are discriminated against based upon their race or spiritual beliefs, while others may be targeted due to their gender. However, some people are discriminated against because of their citizenship status or their immigration status, which is against the law. Regrettably, this type of discrimination occurs too often and some victims do not know their rights or are intimidated and stay silent.

According to the United States Department of Justice, it is illegal for protected employees to experience citizenship status discrimination, or to be discriminated against as a result of their immigration status. A number of people are covered, including temporary residents, asylees, permanent residents, citizens and refugees. Moreover, accusations of citizenship status discrimination are investigated by the Immigration and Employee Rights Section.

Unlawful discrimination takes many forms in workplaces all over the country. Sometimes, victims may lose their job or be assigned to a less desirable role. In other cases, discrimination may include the rejection of a job application solely because of an applicant’s immigration status or cruel and prolonged verbal abuse in the workplace. Those who have been subjected to discrimination which is in violation of the law should not be afraid to firmly stand up for their legal rights and hold whoever is responsible for the mistreatment accountable.
