Discrimination at work? Don't stand for it

Discrimination is the one thing that can catch anyone off-guard at work. Whether you're Asian, White, Black, Hispanic or another minority, discrimination can affect you. You might be discriminated against for being female, male or for your gender preferences. Essentially, all people have the potential to be discriminated against.

In any case of discrimination, the goal has to be to help the victim find a safer work environment. This should be addressed by penalizing those who harass or discriminate against them. Often, the reality is that it may seem there's nothing that can be done, particularly if the person discriminating against you is doing so in a way that's hard to prove.

Call your attorney for help against discrimination

If you have been refused a job due to your gender, age or ethnicity, believe you were passed over for a promotion because of a disability or face discrimination in other ways, one of the best things for you to do is to reach out to your attorney right away.

Your attorney will talk to you about the best ways to get evidence of discrimination, either through witness statements, copies of discriminatory emails or voicemails or by personally recording each discriminatory event. With enough records, you can turn to Human Resources to report the incidents. If there is no HR department or superior who can help, then your attorney can help you start a claim against the business with the evidence that you've collected.
