If you are searching for answers about what discrimination looks like then you are probably being discriminated against, or you are just trying to be extra cautious that you are acting in a civil way at work. But, more than likely you are feeling something eerie at work and you are searching for solutions. Following your instincts is a perfectly natural way to start investigating your own work environment. If you feel as if something doesn’t really make sense then you may be on to something.
Workplace discrimination comes in many shapes and sizes. It doesn’t happen in any direct way all the time and it doesn’t matter what position you are in. In a way, discrimination does not discriminate based on your job position, how much you make, or who you know. As adults, we like to believe that discrimination doesn’t exist. We like to pretend that the behavior was left on the playground or court while we were in middle or high school.
We like to think that the “haters” in college never got a job or somehow ended up working in some backward bar in an isolated town so they can never bother anyone again. But alas, that is not true. We are all carrying stereotypes, misconceptions, discriminations, and poor judgments within us. These judgments remain unless we commit to self-reflective work to unlearn these thought processes. Unfortunately, even the best of us who work hard on being better people still fail. Even more unfortunate is that those people in college ended up getting great jobs and leadership positions. They are still carrying around that some ignorant thought process.
It is not your duty to fix or change their minds. It is not your responsibility to help people unlearn their discriminatory practices at your workplace. It is your job to protect your self. It is your job to exercise your right for a discriminatory free workplace. Our Workplace Discrimination Attorneys at Rager & Yoon – Employment Lawyers in Pasadena have heard it all.
