Workplace actions that can be used to prove racial discrimination begin at the hiring stage. Does the employer recruit and hire people without consideration of the potential employee’s race? Once an employee is hired, are work assignments, perks, mentoring, and training provided to all employees regardless of race?
In regard to money, are the pay and options for pay increases structured so that every employee has the same opportunity to succeed? The courts have found racial discrimination in companies where a particular race is hired for only one or two types of jobs and those jobs have a lower pay base and raise percentage than all other jobs in the company.
In practice, are all employees given performance evaluations at the same interval? Are disciplinary actions or performance improvement plans given disproportionately to one race over another?
