I'm not Native American, but I am Indigenous Australian and I just got rejected from a job because my skintone apparently scares away customers. What do I do??
Happy to help!
Of course we know this is illegal; to discriminate based on race, and color, as well as to discriminate based on religion, sex (including pregnancy, gender identity, and sexual orientation), national origin, age (40 or older), disability or genetic information.
This definitely seems to fall under this category.
The first thing you should do is to go to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission's (EEOC) website: https://www.eeoc.gov.
On the homepage, there is a place to click (on the right side under How to…File a charge of employment discrimination) to get instructions on how to file a charge with the EEOC.
This site will walk you through what you need to do, what to expect, and what the process will be like.
Good luck to you, keep your head up, and walk proud in your beautiful skin!
