Methods for preventing race discrimination in the workplace

Florida employers have the responsibility of making sure they establish and maintain work environments that are free from inappropriate behaviors and fair for all employees. Race discrimination is still a problem in many workplaces, and there are steps companies can take to lower the chance of this happening. Inclusive and diverse workplaces are important, and developing them starts with implementing meaningful change and effective standards.

Programs designed to diversify workplaces and reduce the chance of racial discrimination are not always effective. One problem is that reporting discrimination often results in some type of retaliation, which discourages others from speaking out. One meaningful step employers can take is to establish new procedures for reporting discrimination, providing discreet and confidential ways for victims to defend themselves and put an end to mistreatment.

It is important for employers to consider how bias and racial stereotypes may inadvertently affect certain aspects of company operations, such as when working in groups. There should be adequate representation in groups of all sizes. Racial discrimination can come in many forms, including allowing bias and misconceptions to affect even basic decisions in the workplace. Each Florida employer should strive to find out what inclusion efforts are most effective for their unique work environments.

Race discrimination in the workplace can be subtle, or it can take more aggressive and blatant forms. Regardless, a victim has the right to speak out about what he or she experienced in the workplace and seek justice through a civil claim. It may help to speak with a knowledgeable legal professional regarding the specific legal options available.
