National Origin Discrimination

Federal law prohibits many forms of discrimination based on someone’s nation of origin, culture, ethnicity or perceived ethnicity. Recent immigrants, including those living in the U.S. on a valid green card or visa, are most affected by these laws. National origin discrimination is prohibited in employment, education, health care, and housing (in addition to other settings) and affects company policies regarding the languages that may be spoken on the job. The articles below explain the laws that prohibit discrimination on the basis of national origin and the protections available if you were denied a right based on your national origin.
