workplace discrimination Archives

Color discrimination can be different than racial discrimination

You know that racial discrimination is illegal in the workplace, but did you know that discrimination based on skin color is also prohibited? A lot of times, the two clearly overlap, as skin color is one primary indicator of a person's race. However, it is important to remember that they are not necessarily the same in all situations.

Pregnancy: Protected against discrimination

As a woman in the workplace, one of your fears may be that you could lose your job because you want to start a family. Pregnancy is, fortunately, protected under the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission's (EEOC's) laws and regulations. Federal law bans employers from making decisions about hiring or firing as a result of your pregnancy or intention to have a family in the future. Employers can't ask you about your plans in an interview and may not use your plans against you in the workplace.

1 in 5 men victims of workplace sexual harassment

According to an April 8 report, men make up around one in five of those who complain to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) with workplace sexual harassment concerns. People often assume that women are the only people who deal with workplace sexual harassment, but it's simply not the truth. Even men can deal with these issues.

Medical marijuana: The medicine that could cost you your job

When you're taking a medication that helps you function better, you expect to go to work and participate like on any other day. As long as you have no symptoms that make you a danger to yourself or others, there's no problem, right? That's not always the case.

Employers must avoid retaliation in the workplace

If there's a problem in the workplace, it's your employer's job to do something about it. For instance, if there's a customer who continually comes into the store and sexually harasses you, the manager or owner of the business should stop that person from coming into the store or take you out of harm's way when the person is shopping with the location.

Pregnant women: Never fear for your jobs

In the not-so-distant past, if a woman became pregnant while she was employed, it could mean the instant loss of her job. However, at the end of the 1970s, U.S. lawmakers enacted the Pregnancy Discrimination Act of 1978. This act serves as a powerful law that protects women from any kind of employment-related discrimination if they become pregnant.

You don't have to stand for discrimination in the workplace

Workplace discrimination can quickly make a once-promising job into a horrifying situation to work in. Workplace discrimination happens to people from all walks of life, from pregnant women to homosexual workers. It's against the law to discriminate, yet many employers do so.
