Promotion factors that may work against women

Sometimes, gender discrimination is fairly subtle. For example, take a company that has 50 percent men and 50 percent women in similar entry-level jobs. Yet the company promotes four men for every one woman. This kind of thing might not be easy to notice, especially when it happens gradually. Moreover, some companies might say, "We promoted Richard and not Jane because of X and Y."

Recognizing workplace retaliation

When you show up to work each day, you have certain protected rights, and you may exercise these rights without having to fear that your employer or colleagues will treat you unjustly because you choose to do so. Protected rights take on many forms, but if your employer or coworkers treat you differently because you exercise any of them, they may be engaging in workplace retaliation.

What to do if your coworker is making you feel uncomfortable

Most people have an idea of what sexual harassment is in our heads, and it is usually quite an extreme vision. It might be rape, forceful touching or blackmail. Although these things do constitute sexual harassment, many people do not realize that acts like this are only the tip of the iceberg. There are thousands of people throughout the country that have suffered sexual harassment that do not realize that legally, they can do something about it.
