Hairstyle-Discrimination Bans Help Shield Workers from Race Bias
California recently became the first state to ban workplace discrimination based on hairstyle. Others are following suit in a trend that is sweeping the nation. There are in fact many employees and candidates who are currently being denied promotions or employment opportunities, or even being terminated, because they've chosen to wear a natural hairstyle.
The law is catching up to address this type of discrimination. What should employers know about this emerging trend? Join your colleagues as we review and discuss best practices. Our discussion will be inspired by an article from SHRM, as well as the recent legislation itself.
