Do not stand for discrimination in the workplace

Discrimination should not be tolerated anywhere, and the workplace is no exception. You deserve to be treated fairly, both by your colleagues and by your employers. However, it is an unfortunate fact that many workers in California are subjected to hostile work environments and unfair treatment as a result of traits that have nothing to do with their job. We saw in a recent case how 1,300 female employees were allegedly discriminated against by one company.

Discrimination can take many forms. It may target age, race, gender, national origin or even sexual preference. Some people are discriminated against for their disability or illness, while others may receive poor treatment simply for being pregnant. Whatever the case, it is unfair and uncalled for and those responsible must be challenged.

Of course, the thought of challenging your employer may be daunting. You might worry that it will make things worse or that you might lose your job. However, you have the right to stand up for your well-being and fair treatment. If your employer attempts to punish you for that, it may be seen as retaliatory action, which is another aspect over which you can challenge them.

By standing up to irresponsible employers, not only do you force them to recognize their mistakes, you may also prevent future workers receiving the same treatment. Furthermore, you may be able to claim compensation, or at least secure yourself a more friendly working environment.
