What should I do if I was a victim of discrimination at work?



There are three main things that you should do if you believe you’ve been a victim of discrimination at work. The first is to report it internally, make a complaint of discrimination or harassment following your company’s policies. The second is to see whether or not you need to file a complaint with the EEOC or a related state agency, and it’s important to remember that there are specific deadlines that attach to that. The third thing to do is to consult with an experienced employment attorney, who can advise you of these different options and what statutes might best remedy the discrimination that you suffered at work.
