It is illegal under both Federal and State Law to discriminate in the "terms or conditions of employment" on the Basis of a person's national origin, race or color. "Terms or conditions of employment" means just about anything relating to someone's job: their position, pay, title, hours, vacations, most everything is a term or condition of employment. Whether or not a person is hired is also considered a term or condition of employment. Race is generally defined as a person's ancestry or ethnic characteristics. This means that it is illegal to discriminate against anyone, if the basis is his or her race, national origin or color. Employment race discrimination in the workplace based on association with people of a particular race or national origin is also prohibited.
