Verbal abuse at school should never be ignored

As a parent, it can be difficult to fully understand the experience that your child has at school. You may notice that your child's behavior has changed and that they have become more withdrawn. This may give you cause for concern. If you suspect that your child is being bullied at school in Missouri, it is important that you approach the topic in the right way, letting them know that they are in a safe space to open up.

Always document workplace discrimination

Workplace discrimination happens every day, often to workers in service-sector jobs where employees do not feel that they have much power to fight back. If you experience discrimination in your job, you may have more fighting power than you realize. You must take some important steps to exercise that power. No company wants to deal with a discrimination claim, and many employers may look for ways to get around them, or to claim that your allegations are false. This is one of the many reasons that documentation is so important.

Common misconceptions about workplace discrimination

Employees should be judged based on their work ethic and their ability to get the job done. However, many employees have negative experiences in the workplace because they are treated poorly based on other grounds. If you have a negative interaction at work, you may be wondering whether discrimination is at the heart of it.
