Don't ignore the discrimination that you've faced at work

Discrimination is never allowed in the workplace, and it's something that you can stand up against in yours. According to the Department of Fair Employment and Housing, the law protects people like yourself from illegal discrimination and harassment. This could include discrimination based on any number of factors such as your actual or perceived:

  • Gender identity
  • Medical condition
  • Genetic characteristics
  • Genetic information
  • Marital status
  • National origin
  • Religion
  • Sex or gender
  • Sexual orientation
  • Race
  • Military or veteran status
  • Age (40 or older)
  • Ancestry
  • Religion
  • Disabilities

As you can see, there are many differences that people may have that are protected under law. Here are a few examples of what shouldn't happen in a workplace.

Here's what shouldn't happen in your workplace

Imagine that Sharon goes to work one day and informs a co-worker that she's considering converting to Islam. She believes that the religion is beautiful and that her family would approve. Not more than a few hours later, she's dismissed with a note that says, "this is a Christian company." That should never happen in a discrimination-free workplace.

Another case could happen like this. Amy comes from America, but her heritage is Spanish. Despite being in the United States for many years, she still has an accent. That makes her the brunt of jokes in the office, which is simply unacceptable.

Discrimination doesn't have any place in the workforce. It's unfair to treat people like this. If you are a victim of discrimination, it's important that you speak out. Gather information about when you've been discriminated against, and your attorney will help you build a case.
