One of the most upsetting and frustrating things about our world is that even as we progress technologically and grow personally and intellectually, there are still far too many cases where workers are discriminated against. Some people simply use factors that are irrelevant to job performance to gate their employment community and their company, and it's despicable.
There are so many things that co-workers or companies may focus on to discriminate against an employee or groups of employees:
- They may discriminate against people because of their race or country of origin
- They may discriminate against people because of their gender or their sexual preference
- They may discriminate against people because of their age or their disability status
- They may discriminate against people because of their religion or some other personal factor
None of these reasons qualify as "acceptable" for taking action against an employee. Every person is different, and a company's hiring practices, workplace procedures, and overall policies should not be guided by discriminatory beliefs or actions. When they are, the affected employees should take their own action by consulting with an attorney.
