4 tips if you are facing discrimination at work

Discrimination can come from many sources at work. It could be a boss denying you a promotion based on your gender. It could be co-workers discriminating against you based on your race. No matter what it looks like, it is both frustrating and illegal.

So, what should you do? Here are a number of tips that can help:

  • Keep any hard evidence that you have. If someone sends you a text message or an email, for instance, save a digital copy and then print off a hard copy.
  • Write down everything as it happens. Do not just count on your memory in the future. Start a journal and write out everything that you can remember, such as names, dates, exactly what happened and more.
  • Have a serious conversation with your employer about the matter. Tell them that this is no joke to you. Make sure they know exactly what is happening. In many cases, though these things seem obvious to you, they go overlooked by others in the company. Make sure this cannot happen.
  • Get out your company handbook. Odds are that they have a written policy saying that discrimination is not allowed. You already know it is illegal but understanding exactly where the company stands also helps your case.

As you do all of this, perhaps the most important thing is to make sure you understand your rights. You do not deserve to be treated like this. You do have the same rights as any other employees. You can take action. Make sure you know where you stand and what next steps you need to take.
