Employers are prohibited from discriminating against employees because of their national origin. National origin includes:
Being from a certain country or part of the world;
Having ancestors from a certain country or part of the world;
Being perceived as being a certain ethnicity, even the employee is not of that ethnicity.
National origin discrimination often, but not always, overlaps with race and/or religious discrimination.
If you believe you have been discriminated against because of your national origin, please contact a Pittsburgh employment lawyer at Elzer Law Firm, LLC for a consultation.
