Common Forms of Race Harassment

  • Racial slurs

  • Offensive or derogatory remarks about a person's race or color

  • Displaying racially-offensive symbols

Level of Conduct Necessary To Be Illegal

​​The law does not prohibit teasing, offhand comments, or isolated incidents that are not very serious.  Race/Color Harassment is illegal when it becomes so frequent or severe that it creates a hostile work environment or when it results in an adverse employment action, such as a termination.

If you believe that you are a victim of race harassment, you should reach out to an experienced Race Harassment Employment Law Attorney to discuss your unique situation.  As you can tell, every situation is different and no one-sized-fit-all approach will work for every employee.
