  • Refusal to hire because of nationality
  • Failure to accommodate for special customs
  • Refusal to promote based on stereotypes or preconceived beliefs
  • Workplace harassment, including inappropriate jokes and comments about the employee's national origin
  • Differential treatment because of an employee's clothes
