1) Stand Strong
If an individual is experiencing any form of discrimination at his/her job, being strong and standing up for oneself is crucial. Reporting negative behavior from a coworker or another person at work to a supervisor or the human resources department may be a helpful first step to consider.
2) Keep Detailed Records
If a worker is being treated poorly, keeping detailed records about any actions that are discriminatory is important. For example, if an email has been sent which includes a discriminating comment, a staff member can choose to save the email and the details about who sent it, and when it was written in order to accurately report the behavior.
3) Seek Legal Counsel
Laws and protections for employees may differ depending on where an individual resides. Understanding the rights to which employees are entitled by law can be very helpful, and hiring a lawyer or a legal team may be necessary to ensure that a worker is protected.
