Have You Suffered Discrimination?
Discrimination has long been prohibited by law in the workplace. Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 is perhaps the best known of the laws regulating this conduct. Title VII prohibits discrimination in a broad range of employment activities, including hiring and firing, compensation, promotions, training, benefits, and many other aspects. Sadly, incidences of this type of discrimination still occur on a daily basis.
Sexual Harassment Is Not A Thing Of The Past
Sexual harassment is ubiquitous throughout the workplace. Some people are often thoughtless in recognizing how demeaning their behavior can be. Some may find treating others in this manner a way to get what they want or drive some people from the workplace. It is always illegal. How your employer responds is often the difference between an unfortunate occurrence and an actionable pattern and practice of sexual harassment.
