Discrimination and harassment in the workplace can come in many forms. It can be blatant, but also subtle and concealed. There are many types of discrimination including, but not limited to, Race Discrimination, Gender Discrimination, Sexual Harassment, Age Discrimination, Disability Discrimination, Pregnancy Discrimination, Religious Discrimination, Equal Pay Discrimination, Immigrant/National Origin Discrimination, Sexual Orientation Discrimination, and Reverse Discrimination. Everyone agrees that the workplace is no place for any type of discrimination and owners, managers and employees should all be familiar with the laws that protect employees from workplace discrimination. However, even though your company has stringent policies and training, your company may still be held liable in the event a complaint is filed against your company. Let the investigators at DivCorp assist with your defense.
