One of the most common things you will find on a job posting is an educational requirement. Most jobs require a high school degree; many require a college degree.
Gender discrimination in the workplace happens for many reasons, but one of the biggest issues that women face is that they simply do not have the same representation as men. There are far more men than women in many professions. This doesn't mean that women can't do the job, but they face challenges trying to break into the industry.
When you experience racial discrimination and rejection, it impacts you in many ways. Some of these, you are probably well aware of. You feel angry. You feel frustrated. It makes you irate, as it should. Discrimination is not just illegal, but it is an attack on a personal level to things outside of your control.
Workplace discrimination can have a massive impact on the rest of your life, even after you leave that workplace and avoid the constant abuse. It can change the way you think and feel for years to come. Naturally, it can also have a drastic impact on your career, which also leads to some of these mental and emotional issues.
You know what discrimination is when you see it. It's a worker getting fired because of their age. It's a promotion going to a man over a more-qualified woman simply because of her gender. It's a company giving all of the less desirable jobs to workers of a certain ethnicity.
Do you feel like you face discrimination on a daily basis at work? Maybe you keep getting passed over for promotions that you deserve because of your race. Maybe you hear snide comments made about you by coworkers of the opposite gender. Maybe you don't get paid as much because of your age.
On Oct. 21, a one-time city of Indianapolis employee filed a reverse discrimination lawsuit in federal court against his former employer. In his filing, he accused them of having fired him because of his age and race. He also said that he believes his firing had to do with him verbally expressing his support for President Donald Trump and regularly wearing a "Make America Great Again" baseball cap to work.
As an employee, you hope that workplace discrimination never comes into play. However, if it does, sitting back and hoping that everything works out is not the best approach.
Nearly all transgender workers in Indiana and across the United States have suffered on-the-job harassment or discrimination, according to a new report by the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights. As a result, the organization is calling on Congress to pass legislation that explicitly protects LGBT people from discrimination in the workplace.
