What does Discrimination in the Workplace Look Like?
You shouldn’t have to worry about anything at work, other than getting your job done. Discrimination, however, rears its ugly head and can cause undue stress. Here are the most common forms of workplace discrimination; areas where we can help you fight for your rights as an employee.
Hiring Discrimination – The choice to hire you should be based on one thing: do you meet the basic qualifications of the job? If the decision is determined on your race, gender, disability, or religion, then you are experiencing discrimination.
Sexual Harassment – We should be able to perform the duties of our job without fear of unwanted sexual advances, jokes, or comments.
Retaliation – As an employee, you should be able to request a safe and legal working environment. If your employer doesn’t comply with legal safety standards, you can report them and you shouldn’t have to fear retaliation.
Wrongful Termination – If you are doing your job properly, it is reasonable that you shouldn’t fear termination. If your employer terminates you without just cause, you can fight back and be compensated for the undue burden it has put on you.
Wage Claims – If you work, you deserve to be paid. If your employer tries to short your paycheck (not paying for wages, overtime wages, commissions, or bonuses) then you can reasonably expect to be compensated for them.
Not Accommodating Disability – If you need special accommodations (within reason) to perform your job safely because you have a disability, your employer should provide those accommodations.
Breach of Contract – A contract is there to protect you as much as it to protect the employer. If your employer breaches the contract, you can expect to be compensated.
