Don't let discrimination ruin your career

Employment discrimination is a horrible situation for anyone to go through. Whether you're White, Black, Asian, pregnant, disabled or fall into a protected group, being discriminated against is against the law. Employers often know that what they're doing is wrong, but they hope that people won't report them or will be like-minded enough to agree with their actions.

As someone who is looking for work but having trouble getting a job, you may believe that your religion, appearance or background has something to do with it. That could be the case, but it shouldn't be. For example, if you are Muslim and wear a hijab, that is not a good reason not to hire you. In fact, if you hear discriminatory terms used against you at your interview or are asked invasive questions, you may even have a case against the employer.

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) created rules to prevent people from discriminating against one another in the workplace. Whether you're going through the hiring process, are suddenly fired or are going after a promotion, you should be treated equally regardless of your gender, sex, national origin, religion, disability or other protected factors.

What should you do if you've been discriminated against?

It can be hard to admit that you've been discriminated against. It's a painful reality, though, for some people. If that is the case for you, make sure you speak up and reach out to your attorney. You don't deserve to be treated so unfairly, and there are things you can do to protect yourself and seek compensation for what you've been through.
