Race and Racial Harassment

Race and racial harassment is very serious and very wrong.  Employees often ask, what is race or racial harassment,  what are examples of race or racial harassment, and what can I do to stop it?

As an employee, you have the right to a work environment free from race and racial harassment.  Race and racial harassment is when a work environment is offensive because of an employee’s race.  Race and racial harassment takes many forms, and here are some examples:

  1. Racial jokes;
  2. Racial comments;
  3. Racial pictures or images;
  4. Racial cartoons;
  5. Racial threats;
  6. Racial violence;
  7. Racial stereotypes; and
  8. Offensive comments about a person’s skin color.

These are some examples of race and racial harassment.  But, these are not the only examples of race and racial harassment.
