Take these steps after an instance of workplace discrimination

If you're a victim of workplace discrimination, you have two options:

  1. You can take action against your employer to protect your legal rights.
  2. You can move on with your life without speaking up.

While it's not always easy to do, taking action against your employer is typically the right approach. Not only does this protect your legal rights, but it can also prevent others from dealing with the same type of situation in the future.

Here are some of the most important steps to take after an instance of workplace discrimination:

  • Talk to your employer: For example, file a formal complaint with the HR department. This makes it clear to your employer that you're serious about what's going on.
  • Collect evidence: The evidence you collect can go a long way in helping you prove you were the victim of discrimination. A common example includes an email or text message from a supervisor in which they discuss your situation.
  • Review all state and federal laws: There are both state and federal anti-discrimination laws. For example, well known federal laws include the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), the Age Discrimination in Employment Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

It's difficult to realize that you're the victim of workplace discrimination, but once you pinpoint what's happening you can take action to protect your legal rights.

Depending on the circumstances surrounding your claim, you can fight for reinstatement or compensation related to your discrimination. With the help of an experienced workplace discrimination attorney, you'll better understand how to proceed with your case and what to expect along the way.
