Many people in the United Kingdom still think that discrimination and harassment are things that happen in other countries, when they could have easily been prevented by careful planning and evaluation. Unfortunately, this is a myth that many British people live every day. When a person or organization feels that they have been discriminated against for reasons that are based on their race, sexual orientation, age, or religious beliefs, then they have the right to take legal action.
There are three main areas that you can use when stopping discrimination and harassment. The first is to be aware of the problem and act immediately to stop it. Knowing that race has become the biggest factor in what makes people feel uncomfortable and unsafe in public places of work, it is important to become aware of this situation at all times and act accordingly. You should also make sure that you are capable of responding to any forms of racial discrimination that may occur. If not, you should find someone who can.
Another way of stopping discrimination and harassment is to be aware of the problem and be willing to communicate about it with your employers, coworkers, and potential clients. Most people who feel like they are being discriminated against feel very intimidated and unable to openly discuss their issues with others in fear of having their job terminated. However, if you know that there is a problem and are willing to talk about it, others will be more likely to approach you about their problems. By talking about what you’re experiencing, you can show those around you that you are no longer willing to accept any form of racial discrimination. By putting others on notice that you will no longer tolerate it, you can be sending a clear message that you do not tolerate any type of discrimination.
Another key area of public accommodation discrimination in places of public accommodation is harassment. Harassment is not the same as discrimination. For example, an employer may follow a person around the workplace to make sure they are not going to be working elsewhere or follow a person when they enter or leave the building. The same could happen at a public place such as a restaurant, theatre, etc. Therefore, if you feel that you have been subjected to harassment because of your race, sexual orientation, or gender, you need to take steps to ensure your safety.
By taking action against your harasser and making them aware of your complaint, you can often stop the behaviour and ensure your safety. Furthermore, by standing up for yourself and filing a formal complaint, you can also pursue a claim for racial or sexual harassment or ask for equal pay. If you have been harassed because of your race, there are many different types of racial and sexual harassment laws in different countries and jurisdictions that protect you. In the United States, however, there are no specific laws that protect against racial discrimination or sexual harassment. Therefore, if you have been the victim of racial discrimination or harassment, you can file a charge of employment discrimination or harassment with your employer or the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).
As long as you have taken all reasonable steps to prevent or identify the offending conduct, and have not been forced to take adverse employment action due to your race discrimination or harassment, you have the right to file a claim for either of these factors. You can also pursue a claim for protected activity if you have been subject to the same type of attack on your right of privacy in the place of work. A claim for racial or sexual harassment can also include situations where you have been subject to offensive comments in the workplace, like jokes, emails, and other things in the course of work time.
