Promotion and advancement — Some people can be held back or denied the opportunity to advance in an organization because of their race, color or nationality.
Employee discipline — If you are singled out or treated differently from others for your behavior in the workplace or performance on the job, you may have a cause of action against your employer.
Termination — An employer cannot lay off employees on the basis of race or nationality.
