How to Handle Discrimination

How to Handle Discrimination

Discrimination comes in many forms. The same holds true for harassment. Both discrimination and harassment should be dealt with accordingly to stop it and to spare victims of discrimination and harassment from suffering emotionally as they feel more humiliated and outcast. 

Victims of discrimination should not let themselves be overthrown or defeated with the discriminator or the harasser. They should know how to handle themselves and should also know their rights or legal rights that can make them rise or defeat their discriminator.  

If you happen to be a victim of discrimination or any forms of harassment in your office, the best thing for you to do is to talk to your superiors or office head. Tell them what’s happening in the office, tell them that you’re being harassed or discriminated by your co-worker or office mate. 

However, if you’re being harassed or discriminated by your supervisors or boss, you have to talk to your HR or Human Resource head. Tell them everything, tell them how you feel and ask them to help you have a dialogue with the concerned people who are giving you that kind of treatment.

As a victim of discrimination, it is important for you to know some federal laws that prohibit and condemns discrimination and harassment on anybody on the basis of race, color, nationality, sex, religion, disability, pregnancy and age.

Usual discrimination and harassment case in any office would affect promotions, benefits, and a chance to participate in seminars, conventions, and other forms of activities that can help improve and broaden knowledge to improve your work and productivity.
Keeping mum and silent will not do you any good. It will not only affect yourself, it can affect your relationship with your office mates and superiors. It will also affect your performance as an office worker.
