Employee discrimination under state and federal states is illegal, however it is obviously in place despite many tears of activism, legislation and human resource management looking for ways of preventing harassment. Discrimination occurs in many situations like subtle discrimination is when the employer hires a receptionist for being the most physically attractive.
Employee’s low morale
If there is an overall low morale in a firm, this could mean discrimination is going on. Employees with low morale are found doing more whispering than working, being hostile or even refusing to work with certain groups of people. All these could be contributed by favoritism, lack of good communication with the employers, or favored promotions. Employees feel unappreciated and fear they could lose their job.
Low yields flags up when employees consistently misses work, fails in accomplishing tasks on time and find excuses to leave awarding projects. Sudden under productivity of a certain employee could mean that his colleagues are excluding him in important activities or he is intimidated by other workers by making jokes about him.
Lack of Diversity
The most obvious is the elimination of employees based on gender and age. For example in the police force when female police are discriminated where male police officers are believed to provide sufficient security. When older employees start receiving low records for minor infractions after younger ones appear, this shows age-based discrimination. Lack of consideration and withdrawal of training to disabled persons is another discrimination which leads to lack of diversity.
High Resignation rates
When a firm loses a large number of employees at once mostly signifies discrimination in the company. An example is when a pregnant woman quits a job after delivery because she has been eliminated from company’s significant project she was previously working on as a result of the upcoming parental obligations.
