Reverse discrimination refers to the practice of discriminating against people who belong to a majority group during the hiring or promotion process. Numerous diversity initiatives and affirmative action programs are in place in order to level the playing field so that everyone has a fair shot of getting work and being treated fairly. Some people may claim they have been reverse discriminated against if they believe they were passed over for a job even though they were the most qualified. These types of cases are most often brought up by Caucasians or males who feel they were unjustly passed over for employment.
