Recently, you've decided to start a business, and you are concerned about all of the talk about race and gender discrimination. And you want to know what is this all about? What does it mean? What do I do as an employer? Hello, I'm Robert Todd, and I'm here to answer the question, what is race and gender discrimination? Well basically, it's as simple as it sounds. It is making decisions in the workplace that are based on one's race, or gender. And, this is generally prohibited if not by federal law, by a state or local municipality or county ordinates. It is the unfair decision making with regard to one's opportunity to take a job, to advance in that job, or something of that nature. SImply because that person is of a particular gender or of a particular race. If you're unsure you consult your state's laws and consult the laws of the municipality or county in which you are doing business. And last, but not least, if you're still unsure, consult a labor lawyer who specializes in employment discrimination. I'm Robert Todd, and thank you for watching.
