The many types of workplace discrimination

As an employee, you expect to be treated with respect by your coworkers and employer as a whole. Unfortunately, there are times when this doesn't happen. Taking this one step further, there are situations in which you become a victim of workplace discrimination.

It's important to understand the ins and outs of workplace discrimination, including what this looks like. When you have the right knowledge, you can then make decisions that will keep you in a positive place as a worker.

Some of the most common forms of workplace discrimination include: age, disability, national origin, pregnancy, religion, sex, and genetic information.

For example, disability workplace discrimination is when a company discriminates against a person because he or she has a mental or physical handicap.

If you have reason to believe you've been a victim of workplace discrimination, don't hesitate to report the situation to your HR department. From there, read your employee handbook to learn more about the process for finding a solution.

Of course, you will also want to learn more about your legal rights. In some cases, depending on the type of workplace discrimination and the end result, you may be able to file a lawsuit with the hope of receiving compensation.

At our law firm, we have seen many types of workplace discrimination over the years. Fortunately, we have been able to help many people fight back against their employer, thus ending up in a better place.

If you or a loved one have been the victim of workplace discrimination, don't wait any longer to take action.
