Workplace Discrimination Archives

Are you the victim of a workplace bully?

You thought you were finished with bullying long ago, but it seems like you're going through it all over again – this time by grown adults in the workplace. If you are, you're not alone. People are bullied by coworkers and even bosses all the time.

Employment protections for domestic violence, stalking victims

Victims of violence or other kinds of abuse by a spouse or romantic partner may not realize that they may be entitled to protection against employment discrimination under the law. However, they may be – specifically, under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

Workplace discrimination regulations extend to hiring

Workplace discrimination can begin long before someone gets into the workplace. It too often keeps people out. That's why there are laws regarding what kind of information employers can request during the pre-employment process.

'Microaggressions' in the workplace can take their toll

Often, workplace discrimination isn't as blatant as someone using an ethnic slur or telling someone they aren't qualified for a job because of their race, gender, age or disability. Many employees -- particularly women, people of color, and LGBTQ and disabled people -- are subject to what are called "microagressions" on a regular basis.

Workplace discrimination against gays and lesbians is illegal

The justices of the Supreme Court of the United States entered a ruling on the 1964 Civil Rights Act Title VII on June 15. The high court panel ruled 6-3 that any discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or queer (LGBTQ) workers is unlawful. The panel decided that federal guidelines that refer to 'sex' discrimination being illegal should extend to cover a person's "gender identity" or "sexual orientation."

Are New Jersey employers required to practice affirmative action?

New Jersey (NJ) affirmative action laws have long been in place to protect different workers' rights to equal representation in the workforce. Private and public employers are required to uphold different policies though.

One-time events may not be harassment

Discrimination often takes the form of harassment in the workplace. It can center around your religion, gender, age or some other characteristics. Discrimination can also mean getting fired, overlooked for promotions or otherwise seeing your career get held back. However, much of the day-to-day discrimination that employees face is just harassment.
