I blew the whistle on workplace discrimination, now what?

Exposing discrimination in the workplace takes courage. It is not easy to finally make that move, after you have suspected it and witnessed it more than once. You should feel proud of yourself for speaking out. However, once you have contacted authorities, and made either formal or informal complaints, now what?

Many employees fear speaking out, and the anticipated drawbacks of doing so. Understandably, it is not easy to call attention to a situation when you are still employed for that business or company.

Facts you need to know:

  • You are legally protected by the federal government U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
  • Discrimination of any kind is against the law within a place of employment.
  • Employers are breaking the law if they retaliate against you for exposing discrimination (including filing a complaint, cooperating with law enforcement investigation and/or lawsuit.
  • It is unlawful for an employer to make your work conditions intolerable for the average worker to stay employed, forcing you to resign.

When you suspect employment discrimination of any kind, you are not alone. You have support and resources to help you fight back legally while staying protected from retaliation. There is no reason you should not be able to work peaceably with your co-workers and management while whistleblowing for discrimination. Your rights are protected by law to bring into accountability anyone who attempts to break them.

Contact a lawyer and have your documentation on-hand to proceed with substantiating your case. Other employees will benefit, and your company will have to take the law seriously by complying with authorities.
