What are the early warning signs of sexual harassment?

One of the reasons why sexual harassment gets so far out of hand is that victims dismiss the early warning signs of the behavior as irrelevant. If victims can recognize these early signs and respond to them proactively -- before they get worse -- many difficult circumstances and lawsuits could be avoided.

Employers must be careful about hidden discrimination

Employers frequently fire employees because they perform poorly on the job.

What should I do if I'm being discriminated against at work?

Even in the year 2018, countless American workers go to their jobs every morning knowing that they will face harsh discriminatory behavior and harassment because of their races, their religions, their sexes and their national origin. Unfortunately, many workers stay quiet and put up with this unfair treatment because they're afraid they could lose their jobs if they speak up. However, these workers should know that powerful federal law – backed by the United States Constitution – protect them from this kind of abuse and they can make it stop as soon as they're ready.
