Reverse Discrimination - Wrongful Termination

Reverse Discrimination

Reverse discrimination is a term that describes policies or habits of social discrimination against members of a historically dominant group with an implication of unfairness. Sometimes reverse discrimination can result from affirmative action policies created to decrease discrimination in the workplace against minority employees. In many democratic societies, the dominant group is in the majority, and the disadvantaged is in the minority.

Most forms of reverse discrimination are now illegal in most countries, however in some countries, like the U.S, affirmative action assisting minorities is required by law. In other countries affirmative action is considered reverse discrimination, and therefore illegal.

Reverse Discrimination in the Workplace

The Civil Rights Act of 1965 says that all people are protected from all forms of employment discrimination based on sex, race, or national origin, etc.  There have been numerous reverse discrimination court cases over the years.  Ultimately, the outcome is that courts now recognize all Americans are protected by the statute, even males and Caucasians.  Some employers choose to ignore this issue and show favoritism to minorities or females. Some employers blatantly violate this law when they discriminate against white males.  Only 2 percent of employment discrimination cases pending however, are reverse discrimination cases. The law, as interpreted by courts, is that any person that benefits from affirmative action in the workplace must have relevant job and educational qualifications.
