DISCRIMINATION IN THE WORKPLACE
Hair can be a significant part of a person’s cultural identity.1 It

Eatman, Carmelita Vazquez, and Chastity Jones. All of their stories
will be shared in this Note.3

Hair discrimination has existed for centuries and has been
perpetuated by workplace grooming policies.4 These policies can be
facially neutral,5 by requiring “professional” or “businesslike”
appearances but still have discriminatory effects by applying
disproportionately to minority employees. Federal employment
discrimination claims are governed under Title VII of the Civil Rights
Act of 1964, which is a statutory provision to protect employees
against workplace discrimination based on their race, color, religion,
sex, or national origin.6
Workplace grooming policies can be disproportionately
discriminatory against people of color based on the nature and texture
of their hair, which has distinct qualities compared to those of their
white counterparts.7 Across the United States, there has been a push
