Race discrimination includes discrimination on the grounds of:

  • Colour
  • Nationality
  • Ethnic or national origins

Examples of race discrimination include:

  • Name calling
  • Offensive comments/ gestures
  • Not being chosen for a job or promotion because of race, nationality or ethnic background
  • Being dismissed because of race, nationality or ethnic background
  • Being subjected to less favourable treatment because of race, nationality or ethnic background
  • Being chosen for redundancy because of race, nationality or ethnic background

There is a defence to race discrimination which is that it is an occupational requirement. This means that employers can positively discriminate and choose to employ people from certain ethnic groups in certain situations such as:

  • Choosing a Chinese waiter/waitress in a Chinese restaurant
  • Choosing a specific actor/ actress to preserve integrity
  • Models for artists and photographers
  • Those providing welfare services to a particular group
