RACE (TITLE VII)
Fair treatment and equal opportunity in the workplace are rights of the American workforce, regardless of their race. Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 clearly prohibits employment discrimination based on various factors, including race, color, and national origin. When an applicant or current employee is the subject of discrimination, harassment, or retaliation by members of a professional organization, including private companies and government offices, it is a violation of state and federal law. The offending party may be a manager, coworker, executive, or anyone holding a position.
