Every workplace has its benefits and drawbacks. A Michigan resident may love the work that they do for their employer, but may find it difficult to work with all of their co-workers. Alternatively, an individual may adore the people that share their workspace, but may find their on-the-job tasks to be tedious. However, no matter where a person works or what they do for a living, they should not have to endure harassment or discrimination when they do their job.
Discrimination and harassment are prohibited employment actions in for many different employers and types of workplaces. Individuals may not be treated differently at work because of their race or religion, gender or sexual orientation. They may not be subjected to adverse employment actions, like demotions, loss of responsibilities or terminations because of their inclusion in these and other protected classes.
Not all employers and their hired supervisors operate in fair and legal manners. Despite the existence of anti-discrimination and anti-harassment laws many places of employment are marred by detrimental and abusive employment conditions for their workers. When workers are subjected to these adverse conditions, they may have legal rights to protect themselves and their employment.
