National Origin Discrimination vs. Race Discrimination: What's the Difference?

Are you thinking about suing your employer for race discrimination? While this type of unlawful employer behavior is the most common in the United States according to current EEOC charge statistics, you may want to reassess your situation before contacting an employment attorney. This is because, while race and national origin often overlap, many employees mistake race discrimination for national origin discrimination. And although they may sound the same, California and federal employment laws address each protected class separately. This common mistake is easy to make since your race is usually connected to your national origin. So, how do you know if you're being subjected to workplace discrimination due to your race, or if it's related to your national origin?
