Sadly, some immigrants face national origin discrimination when trying to start a new career in the U.S. If you have been subjected to discrimination on the basis of your national origin, an array of challenges may interfere with your work. For example, you could be facing financial problems because you were treated unfairly, or you could be under a considerable amount of anxiety. At Anticouni & Associates, we believe that national origin discrimination is unacceptable and that victims should not hesitate to take action.
On job sites and work spaces across the country, discrimination is widespread. Employees may be treated unfairly and illegally due to their racial background, their gender, their religious views or their sexual orientation. However, some workers are also discriminated against because of their national origin, which is especially prevalent among immigrant workers in Santa Barbara, and all across California.
Whether you are employed on a full-time or part-time basis, are a temporary worker or an immigrant worker, or find yourself in any other employment situation, it is essential to identify illegal discrimination and take action as soon as possible. Regrettably, many workers in Santa Barbara and other parts of California who have been subjected to unlawful discrimination in the workplace choose to remain silent for multiple reasons. Some are afraid of losing their job or being retaliated against for filing a complaint (which is also illegal), while others are not aware of the different kinds of workplace discrimination that are prohibited by law.
