In the employment context, race discrimination involves denying equal employment opportunity to any person because of their race. Racial discrimination can happen when the employer harbors stereotypes about you because you belong to particular race or because your employer associates your personal characteristics with a particular race (e.g., hair texture, facial features).
Racial discrimination is not a problem that we can continue to hide from. Florida employers should ensure that the people the choose to put in power over you are appropriately trained and that any complaints of race discrimination in the workplace are thoroughly investigated and addressed accordingly.
No American Citizen Should Be Subject to Racial Discrimination at their Work
Regardless of what personal prejudices a person may hold, one thing should be clear: each and every American has the right to equal opportunity in their employment. Virtually everybody in Florida is required to work in order to provide for ourselves and our families and every Florida employee has the right to equal opportunity in our employment pursuits.

Unfortunately, race discrimination in the workplace still runs rampant in Florida. Discrimination on the basis of color involves denying equal employment opportunity to any person because of that person’s skin color or complexion. Race or color discrimination also may also include treating a person unfavorably because of his or her association with someone or some group generally associated with a particular race or color (e.g., marriage).
Race and color discrimination could take the form of refusing to hire, discharging, failing to promote, harassing, or discriminating against a person with respect to any other term, condition or privilege of employment.
Additionally, victims of race discrimination are also usually subject to retaliation. In many cases, Florida employers will retaliate against an employee because they objected to or opposed racial discrimination.
