Can harassment be discriminatory?

No matter where you work, there is a chance that you may not get on well with all of your colleagues or even your employer. Of course, as long as you are hard working and diligent this should not be too much of an issue. After all, if everyone behaves professionally, you can still remain civil to each other even if you do not see eye to eye. Unfortunately, as all too many employees in Missouri discover, not everyone manages to treat people fairly, and some workers are subjected to hostile and even threatening work environments.

There are many reasons this can happen. For example, some employees are persecuted because they are better at their job than others or because they highlight unsafe working conditions or other problems within the workplace. In other cases, people are singled out for reasons of race, gender, sexuality, religion or a variety of other factors that have nothing to do with their job.

Discrimination is unacceptable both at work and in your day-to-day life, yet it is something all too many employees endure every day. It also goes hand in hand with harassment as often workers are targeted for discriminatory reasons. As this article on employee rights mentions, it also counts as discrimination if your employer enacts policies that disparately impact certain groups.

Of course, it can often be a difficult matter to settle, so you may benefit from the advice of an attorney. He or she can advise you about your rights and may be able to assist you through the process of filing your claim. With this guidance, you can work toward pursuing the compensation you deserve for the mistreatment you have endured.
