Strategies to Prevent and Avoid Discrimination in the Workplace

Recognize the risk of discrimination in the workplace and learn strategies to prevent discrimination before lawsuits happen.

All employers are faced with complaints of discrimination in the workplace. Employees routinely make complaints about discrimination based on race, color, religion, gender, national origin, age, disability and other protected characteristics. In some cases, employers have created and enforced policies and practices that give rise to a higher risk of workplace discrimination. This topic helps the employers recognize the risks of workplace discrimination and proactively address those risks. The material also explains strategies and methods for avoiding workplace discrimination before they become administrative charges or lawsuits. Applying employment policies differently to different employees most often leads employers to complaints about unlawful discrimination. Often, these policies have led to discrimination suits and damages awards. This information is critical for employers so they can minimize the risks of workplace discrimination.
