Recognizing Workplace Discrimination
Workplace discrimination can take various forms, including:

  • Harassment: Including verbal, physical, or visual conduct that creates a hostile work environment or results in adverse employment decisions.
  • Retaliation: Punitive actions taken against an employee for reporting discrimination or participating in a discrimination investigation.

Steps to Take If You’re Facing Harassment
If you’re experiencing harassment or discrimination in the workplace, it’s crucial to take the following steps:

  • Document Incidents: Keep detailed records of any discriminatory or harassing behavior, including dates, times, witnesses, and the nature of the incidents.
  • Report the Behavior: Report the harassment or discrimination to your employer’s HR department or a supervisor. Follow the company’s established procedures for reporting such incidents.
  • Seek Support: Reach out to supportive colleagues, friends, or family members for emotional support during this challenging time.
