Ethnicity

An ethnic group may be defined as a social collection of persons who identify with each other based on common ancestral, cultural, social, or national experiences such as a shared ancestry, history, homeland, heritage, language, belief, immigration experience, or appearance. A person’s ethnicity may be related to his race, religion, national origin, immigration status, or tribe. Like discrimination based on race, religion, and national origin, it is unlawful under California and federal law to terminate or harass an employee because of his ethnic background. If ethnic discrimination is the basis of a wrongful termination claim, an employee who sues under California’s Fair Employment and Housing Act can recover lost wages, compensatory damages for emotional distress, punitive damages, attorney fees and costs in court.
