Discrimination on the basis of citizenship and national origin are separate, but related, causes of action. Discrimination on the basis of national origin includes discrimination in hiring, firing, promotions, and access to training and other opportunities based on the country in which one was born regardless of the person's legal status as a citizen or permanent U.S. resident. Rejecting an applicant, firing or retaliating against an employee because they appear foreign is nationality discrimination.
Discrimination based on citizenship relates to treating non-U.S. citizens differently than U.S. citizens. An employer that establishes separate hiring policies for citizens and non-citizens, for example, may be charged with discrimination based on citizenship.
