National Origin Discrimination

National Origin Discrimination is different than race discrimination. It happens when an employer discriminates because of where someone was born. Obviously, race discrimination and national origin discrimination can often go hand-in-hand.

The Immigration Reform and Control Act, (IRCA) prohibits employment discrimination because of national origin against U.S. citizens, U.S. nationals, and authorized aliens.

A "U.S. citizens only" policy in hiring is illegal. An employer may require U.S. citizenship for a particular job only if it is required by federal, state, or local law, or by government contract.

An employer may not discriminate because of citizenship status against U.S. citizens, U.S. nationals, and the following classes of aliens with work authorization: permanent residents, temporary residents (that is, individuals who have gone through the legalization program), refugees, and asylees.

Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 bans national origin discrimination against any individual.
