Am I Being Discriminated Against If An Employer Refuses To Hire Me Because My Spouse Is Middle Eastern?
By Deskin Law Firm
People are protected from being discriminated against based on their race. The law also protects those people that are associated with those in this protected class. As a result, the protections against race and color discrimination extend to persons associated with a member of the protected class. If employers failure to hire an individual was motivated by the individual's interracial marriage, then discrimination may have occurred.
To figure out if your discrimination situation is illegal you must determine:
1. If you are an employee protected from discrimination under the law.
3. If your employer's conduct is considered discriminatory under the law.
