Gender discrimination in the workplace is, unfortunately, an ongoing issue. Despite the fact that strong laws exist to prevent the issue, you may fall victim to discriminatory practices at your job. According to the Pew Research Center, 42 percent of women say they face workplace discrimination. This is a disturbing number that shows the seriousness of this problem.
As someone who lives and works in America, you are probably aware of certain laws that pertain to the workplace. For example, you may know that you have a right to a harassment and discrimination-free environment. You may not know, however, that you are also protected in your right to “blow the whistle” about these and other wrongdoings without having to fear being retaliated against by your employer.
