Understanding what constitutes harassment and discrimination under the law:
What does workplace discrimination look like?
Workplace discrimination can be so insidious that the victim sometimes does not realize that they are dealing with a problematic situation. For example, a woman who is not promoted may assume that she is not qualified for the promotion, but if she recently announced a pregnancy at work, she may have been held back due to her pregnancy status.
What does workplace harassment look like?
Workplace harassment is broader than discrimination in that it represents a pattern of discriminatory behavior that actually leads to a hostile work environment. For example, if an openly gay woman is repeatedly mocked for her sexual orientation to the extent that she feels unwelcome in her office, she is dealing with a hostile work environment and likely has grounds for a case.
