TrainingBriefs® Gender Discrimination
Tackling Workplace Discrimination
An employee comes to you and complains that they have been discriminated against because of gender. What do you do? Being a manager or supervisor is a fulfilling role. But as you know, there are times where you’ll need to tackle tough situations. When it comes to working with an employee who feels they’ve been discriminated against, don’t immediately dismiss the situation. Listen fully to the accuser’s story and ask for specific examples of what was done and said. Be empathic.

Gender discrimination is illegal. Ask the employee why they feel discriminated against. Don’t react with denials or arguments. Listen and accept what the person says as the way they feel. You may need a day or two to get the facts and talk to others - including legal counsel or Human Resources. Be open to the possibility of unconscious bias or the appearance of discrimination.
