While our nation has taken great strides to protect us against discrimination, it still occurs in many areas of life, including in the workplace. Fortunately, there are national and state laws that protect employers from discriminating against individuals on the basis of race, creed, color, national origin, sex, religion, age, disability, pregnancy, and many other classifications.

Consider Talking to Your Employer
Discrimination should not be swept under the rug. In some instances, it's advisable to talk to your employer about the illegal acts of discrimination and harassment you are facing. Your employer may have been unaware of this unacceptable behavior and take action against the individual who is responsible. And, if your employer were to retaliate, there are laws protecting you from that too.
Record any incidents of discrimination and harassment. Write down any relevant information, including the date, time, location, persons involved, and witnesses. Also keep any objects or messages you received that you believe to be discriminatory.
