Surname 1 Workplace Discrimination: Case study of Genius Bar Student’s Name Course Details Professor’s Name Date Introduction One of the most fundamental proclamations of the constitution is equality concerning the provisions of the law (Kingston et al. 2015). The constitution guarantees the right to equality for every individual and further ensures that everyone is safeguarded from all types of unfair discrimination that may occur. Unfair discrimination may be propagated by racial inclination, gender dissimilarities, sexual preferences, social backgrounds, color, marital status, and religion. Additionally, unfair prejudice may take place on the grounds of age, disability, religion, HIV/AIDS status, language, and beliefs. People may be discriminated against in areas of work, in social events, hospitals, and public offices. Therefore, unfair discrimination amounts to maltreatment since people do not get what they are rightfully entitled to because of personal reasons that they may not have the power to alter. Unfair prejudice has become rampant in the
Surname 2 workplace, and therefore, it is the task of every employer to ensure that they treat all their workers with impartiality to avoid being guilty of perpetrating discrimination in the workplace. Thus, this paper is centered on workplace discrimination at the Genius Bar by answering the four questions as outlined in the case study. Question one Unwarranted bias in the workplace Each employer should make strategies to foster equal chances in the workplace by doing away with unfair discrimination in all policies and practices regarding employment. In case the actions or demeanor of an employer cause infringement of the rights of an employee or becomes inappropriate or one-sided, then the situation may be termed as unfairness. The law prohibits direct or indirect prejudice against a worker in employment policies or practices. Additional grounds for non-discrimination according to rules include domestic responsibilities and political affiliations (Okechukwu et al. 2014). Workplace bias also consists of the situation whereby two or more workers working for the same employer are given different terms of employment in spite of doing the same tasks of equal value. Although the law does not explicitly require employers to provide equal pay for equal amounts of work done, employers should not exercise prejudice against their workers in the previously mentioned circumstance. Companies and organizations should give similar benefits to their employees including payment and bonuses. Harassment of a worker by the employer or another worker may also be termed as unfair discrimination (Vanhove et al. 2014). Employees may be harassed because of either the color of their skin or they may be sexually harassed in their places of work. Uncalled for treatment may occur in pure forms, for instance, an employer making a racial joke or a sexually insensitive joke regarding an employee in the presence of other workers. Hence, workplace bullying is also a
Surname 3 form of discrimination in the workplace. Harassment in the workplace should be heavily avoided
