What is workplace discrimination?

California workers like you don't have control over the actions or words of your bosses or coworkers. This can sometimes result in discrimination. The Law Offices of Mauro Fiore, JR. are dedicated to protecting you from discriminatory practices or actions while you're at your job.

First of all, what is workplace discrimination? It's the act of being treated as "lesser" based on your:

  • Sex or gender
  • Sexual orientation
  • Race or nationality
  • Religion
  • Any disabilities
  • Pregnancy

Some groups are more at risk for discrimination than others. For example, women often face a higher rate of discrimination than men in most job fields. Certain areas of work or even places have biases against some religions. It can be difficult if your coworkers hold discriminatory opinions, and it can be actively damaging to your happiness in the industry and overall progress if your boss does.

If you're being discriminated against, you will be treated unfairly, seemingly for no reason in some cases. You may be left out of group meetings, or given less pay than other people doing the same amount of work. You may find yourself the butt of office jokes that are harmful instead of funny. You may be denied the opportunity for a promotion or to complete certain tasks because of any disabilities you could have.

Being discriminated against at the workplace can be a difficult thing to swallow, and disheartening or offensive above all. If you feel like the actions taken against you at work are of a discriminatory nature, you might benefit from clicking the link to our web site and reading about what you can do to combat these practices.
