What does data suggest about workplace fairness?

When you looked for your last job, you probably considered factors such as the amount of money you could earn, the average commute time and the possibility to advance within the organization. Walking into your interview, you were prepared to ask questions about the business leadership's vision and last quarter's results.

Once you started working, it probably took some time to determine whether the company culture was one of respect, dignity and fairness. If your employer released you from their employ after performing your duties to the best of your abilities, you may want to know whether they acted legally. Like more than one million other members of the workforce, discrimination may have been a deciding factor in your job loss.

Common job discrimination complaints

State and federal employment laws prohibit discrimination in the workplace. However, not all employers adhere to the regulations designed to protect workers.

According to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), more than 50% of discrimination charges related to retaliation during 2019. Other filings, ranked by frequency, include:

· Disability

· Race

· Gender

· Age

· National origin

A workplace ought to be a safe place to complete job-related tasks. It should also provide an opportunity for you to succeed.

Employers must adhere to employment laws

If your employer's expectations of or accommodations for you differ from that of your coworkers, you would be wise to explore your options. When problems are brought to an employer's attention, they may be dealt with accordingly.

Unresolved discrimination claims resulting in a hostile work environment or job loss are unacceptable. While you might find yourself looking for another job, you may retain the right to hold your employer accountable.
