Protections from workplace discrimination as a disabled person

As a person with disabilities, you may often feel worried about highlighting your personal needs in the workplace. It's probable that you do not enjoy drawing attention to how your disabilities alter your working environment, and the fact that you need adjustments made so that your working experience is a comfortable one. However, it is important to know that being provided with reasonable accommodations in the workplace is your legal right as a disabled person in the workplace.

What is an “adverse action?”

Federal and state laws protect workers from retaliation if they file a complaint or become a whistleblower. Far too often, however, workers who assert their rights are retaliated against.

Subtle gender discrimination in the workplace

Although there are many laws in place with a goal to prevent discrimination in the workplace in the United States, the sad fact is that gender discrimination still occurs, both in subtle and nonsubtle ways. Sometimes, it is acts of microaggressions that create a negative atmosphere in the workplace, and these are what need to be challenged from a legal perspective if real change is to be made.

Protecting yourself after making a complaint

Each year, many people take the initiative to make complaints against their employer. This could be for many reasons; perhaps they have witnessed their employer engaging in fraudulent activities, or maybe they believe that their working environment is unsafe.
