Everyone has the right to feel safe and accepted in their place of work. If you experience workplace discrimination or harassment, it can have a profound impact on your professional and personal life.
What is workplace discrimination?
Workplace discrimination occurs when an employer takes adverse actions against a worker or potential worker because of a protected attribute. These attributes include things such as:
- Skin colour
- Sexual orientation
- Physical or mental disability
- Marital status
- Religion or political opinion
The laws surrounding workplace discrimination vary from state to state, and strict time limitations apply. It's important to seek expert legal advice as soon as possible to ensure your rights are protected.
