What To Do About Discrimination in the Workplace

Discrimination in the Workplace

Have you been discriminated against in your work place? First, let’s see what discrimination looks like.

  • Interference in doing your job
  • Making changes to your job in a way that is disadvantageous to you
  • Treatment that is different from everyone else
  • Refusal to employ you
  • Unfair dismissal
  • Being given different pay or conditions to others who are doing the same job.

So you can see that discrimination is not the same as harassment. It is basically when you are treated unfairly because of what you stand for or who you are. It could simply be because you are a female that you are subjected to different treatment, refused work that you are well qualified for, or paid less than your male counterparts.

What are some of these issues?

  • Blended families trying to get used to each other’s personalities, or where one or more children resent the new ‘parent’. Counselling can help both children and parents to make the transition into new living arrangements easier to adjust to.
