Race & Racial Harassment
Race harassment and racial harassment is very serious and very wrong. Employees often ask, what is race or racial harassment, what are examples, 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. This takes many forms, and here are some examples:
- Racial jokes;
- Racial slurs;
- Racial comments;
- Racial pictures or images;
- Racial cartoons;
- Racial threats;
- Racial violence;
- Racial symbols like a noose or other hateful symbol;
- Racial stereotypes; and
- Offensive comments about a person’s skin color.
These are some examples. But, these are not the only examples of race and racial harassment.
