Workplace Discrimination: Yes, It Happens

Some people are so happy with their job that they don’t understand why others feel differently.

While many people simply don’t enjoy their job, others feel this way because they have been discriminated against.

As noted by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), there are many types of workplace discrimination:

  • Age
  • Disability
  • Equal pay
  • Genetic information
  • Harassment
  • National origin
  • Pregnancy
  • Race/color
  • Religion
  • Retaliation
  • Sex
  • Sexual harassment

If you have been discriminated against, don’t waste time reporting the act to your supervisor or human resource department. From there, it is within your rights to consult with a workplace discrimination attorney. Your legal team may be able to help you receive compensation for:

  • Back pay
  • Emotional distress
  • Future lost earnings
  • Attorney fees and costs
  • Punitive damages

There is no place for workplace discrimination. If you have become a victim, it is time to fight back.
