Workplace Discrimination Archives

Baby boomers experiencing more age discrimination

The baby boom generation has long been influential in many areas of American life. From the post-WWII explosion of the suburbs and the building of thousands of schools, to the student unrest and political protest of the 1960s, and the focus of consumer marketing, the generation has shaped much of American culture for the last 50 years.

Workplace discrimination next challenge for gay rights groups

Work place discrimination is very much a matter of perspective. It can often seem invisible to those who are not a member of a group subject to discrimination. But for those who experience it, it can be almost as debilitating as a physical injury, as they attempt to cope with loss of a job and income.

Stranger in a strange land?

During a working career, most people believe that their experience gained while performing any job means they become more valuable to their employers. And that may be true. But that does not mean those employers want to pay for that experience. They may also believe that in some areas, older workers lack the flexibility or are not sufficiently "with it" to learn new systems or processes.

Kill the buzz?

Fairness is hard. In a business, the hiring and treatment of employees can be viewed in many ways. It can be seen as important and the "core" of the business. Or it can be seen as problematic necessity, with an attitude of while we need them, they are not important. In every hiring situation, there are winners and losers. After all, if there is one position open, there can only be one applicant who "wins," while everyone else loses.

Disparate treatment discrimination

Under the federal employment laws, workplace discrimination can be shown to have occurred by disparate treatment. This is where an individual is intentionally discriminated against because they are a member of a protected class, such as gender, racial or religious groups. It can also occur when some engages in a protected activity and suffers retaliation because of that activity, such as being fired after filing a complaint with Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).

Survey shows the uphill battle faced by many older workers

Memories of the recent recession are finally starting to fade for many people thanks to the nation's sustained economic recovery, particularly in relation to the job market. Indeed, data from the U.S. Labor Department shows that roughly 250,000 jobs were added every month in 2014, marking the highest rate of job growth in nearly two decades.

More honored in the breach…

There is a great deal of illegal discrimination that occurs in the workplace. Some is inadvertent; some businesses fail to grasp the mandatory nature of the federal civil rights and employment laws, either because they do not believe they apply or because do not understand the requirements of the law.
