City Building Department accused of discrimination

We continue this week with a similar topic to what we discussed in our last post. This time it involves the City Buildings Department. The department is facing a lawsuit from a handful of people who say they were repeatedly passed up for promotions due to being minorities.

How do I file a workplace discrimination claim?

No one ever wishes to experience workplace discrimination, but it’s an unfortunate occurrence that continues to happen in New York and across the country. Not every employment termination means there was discrimination involved, but there are definite cases where an employer acted based on a preference of prejudice against a certain group of people protected under state and federal law.

What does pregnancy discrimination look like?

In this day and age, it’s almost sad that we are still talking about this issue, but it’s definitely very important: pregnancy discrimination. Some people are not even aware of the fact that it’s an issue until they or a loved one experience it firsthand. It may seem hard to believe, but pregnancy discrimination happens yearly in workplaces in Syracuse and across the United States.

Microagressions in the workplace, another form of discrimination

Women in the workplace have had to fight for their right to be recognized as equals to their male counterparts. However, the battle continues for all women, especially women of color. For one New York woman, her ongoing battle is now being fought in the courtroom. Her employer, energy provider Con Edision hired her as one of the first black women to be working in a role that is normally held by white males. Despite negative comments from her male-counterparts, she was determined to do her job well and eventually move up the ladder to a supervisory role.

Weight discrimination: how prevalent is it?

Although most states in the U.S. do not have laws protecting against this type of discrimination in the workplace, it is definitely worth discussing: weight discrimination. It's something that's extremely hard to prove and proving it would not bring much recourse anyway. But according to the deputy director of the Rudd Center for Food Policy and Obesity, there is research in the United States that shows that weight discrimination among women is "comparable to rates of racial discrimination." The director says weight discrimination has been documented as one of the most common types of employment discrimination that is experienced by individuals.
