7 questions you must ask yourself if you think you are the victim of workplace discrimination

Despite the fact that both federal and California law prohibit various types of workplace discrimination, it still happens far too often. In some cases, employers will even use company reorganizations or reductions-in-force as an excuse when they illegally fire workers for discriminatory or retaliatory reasons.

If you believe you are the victim of illegal workplace discrimination during a company downsizing, here are seven questions you need to ask yourself:

  • What was the selection process for who was fired during the reorganization or downsizing?
  • Did your boss keep less-qualified workers, even though you were fired
  • Was the selection process actually fair and objective, or was an employer's bias reflected in the final decisions?
  • If the process was seemingly objective, were the criteria actually applied equally to all workers?
  • Did your supervisor or manager make discriminatory/derogatory comments about you specifically or other employees before you were let go?
  • Did you make a complaint to human resources or management about illegal actions in the workplace in the months leading up to the reorganization?
  • Were you treated differently in any way from other employees?

Still think you may have been the victim of illegal discrimination during a company reorganization? Learn more about your rights and legal options in the FREE white paper we published a few weeks ago titled, Downsizing And Discrimination: An Illegal Combination.

Some of the important issues we discuss in this paper include:

  • The many laws that protect you and other employees from discrimination or retaliation during a reduction-in-force or company reorganization
  • The steps you need to follow in order to prove your boss illegally terminated you, and the damages you may be able to seek

If you would like to learn more about these important issues, we urge you to read our white paper. After all, knowing your rights is the first step to making informed legal decisions.
