Common forms of workplace discrimination

Going to work should not cause you to be anxious, fearful or depressed. But, for some, it can be due to the way the employer handles issues at the workplace. Every employee in the country is protected from discrimination because of various laws that are in place. However, not all employers like to follow those laws. Today, we will discuss some common forms of workplace discrimination.

Explaining whistleblowing as it pertains to the workplace

Being labeled a whistleblower is not necessarily a bad thing. It is also not necessarily a good thing. Why? If you are considered a whistleblower in an employment setting you could wind up being the victim of workplace discrimination if your employer retaliates against you. Let's take a look at whistleblowing and what it means for the workplace.

How can I negotiate my severance package?

If you have reason to believe that you may have your employment terminated in the near future, it is important that you look into your work contract to understand your right to a severance package. While no-one wants to be laid off, a severance package can make a bad situation a little easier to deal with.

Key warning signs of workplace discrimination

Workplace discrimination can be difficult to identify if you do not fully understand what it is. If you have been feeling uncomfortable at work or you believe that you have needlessly missed out on promotion opportunities, it is important that you take a step back and reflect upon the way you are treated and whether it could constitute discrimination.

Every workplace in California is supposed to offer the same opportunities to people of all ages, races, genders, etc. Discrimination is illegal, but it still happens, and employees need to know what to watch out for. One potential issue is when workplace roles do not appear fair.
