Should you complain if you think you're being discriminated against on the job

Many times I have met with clients who felt like they were being harassed or discriminated against in the workplace long before coming to see me. However, they failed to complain to their employers for fear that they would suffer retaliation or even termination if they complained. They felt that it was either better to try to handle it themselves or just ignore it and hope it passed. Ultimately, the harassment and discrimination just increased or the harasser found a way to have them terminated anyway.

Chipotle hit with $550,000 jury verdict for pregnancy discrimination

On August 5, 2016, a federal jury in Washington D.C., awarded Doris Garcia Hernandez, a former Chipotle employee, $550,000 for suffering discrimination by her employer.

For instance, Ms. Hernandez's manager did not allow her to take restroom and water breaks as necessary. When Ms. Hernandez had to leave work early to attend a prenatal doctor appointment, her manager terminated her.
