What Does Discrimination Look Like?
Discrimination comes in many forms. It can be outright harassment that makes the performance of your job duties more difficult, the denial of a promotion for which you are qualified or termination motivated by a discriminatory factor.
Sometimes, discrimination is not as blatant as name-calling and inappropriate comments in the workplace. Sometimes, it is more subtle. If you have been denied a promotion because of your gender, race, age or a similar characteristic, that is a form of discrimination. If you have been disciplined in a manner that is not in line with other employees, and you believe it is because of gender, race or age, you may be a victim of workplace discrimination.
