What To Do If You Suffer Discrimination At Work
The first thing to do if you're experiencing workplace discrimination is to speak with the offending employee and ask him or her to stop their discriminatory behavior. The offending employee might not know his or her discriminatory behavior.
If the offending employee does not stop the discrimination, in that case, your next step should be to talk to your employer's human resources manager or supervisor to make a formal complaint regarding the problem. At this point, you should also consider hiring an employment discrimination attorney if the offending employee does not stop the discriminatory behavior. An experienced employment discrimination lawyer will be able to guide you after you make a formal complaint about your discrimination.
