What Is Workplace Discrimination?
You may be familiar with the word “discrimination.” But do you know what it really means? And do you understand how it applies in the context of your job?
To “discriminate” against someone means to treat that person differently, or less favorably, for some reason. Discrimination can occur while you are at school, at work, or in a public place, such as a mall or subway station. You can be discriminated against by school friends, teachers, coaches, co-workers, managers, or business owners.
