Don't let discrimination get to you: Fight back

There is no place for discrimination in any workplace. It is very hard to deal with discrimination when it affects your everyday environment. Whether you're a Black American struggling because of racism in your workplace, or you're a Muslim who is just trying to get through the day without negative interactions with clients, you deserve to know your legal rights.

Discrimination is against the law. It is specifically illegal for your employer to discriminate against you. Co-workers and clients may not discriminate against you in the workplace, or you may be in a position to make a claim.

What are the kinds of discrimination you could face in the workplace?

In the workplace, you could face discrimination such as sexual discrimination, discrimination against you because of your disability, age discrimination, discrimination against you due to your national origin or even discrimination based on your race. You could be discriminated against because of pregnancy, color or religion. In worst-case scenarios, saying something to try to stop this discrimination could result in retaliation, which is also against the law.

What should you do if you face discrimination at work?

If you face discrimination at work, don't think that you have to put up with it. You have the right to work in an environment without discrimination and retaliation. If you speak up against discrimination, and your employer retaliates, you can look into your legal rights and pursue action.
