Student Number: E0800024 Discrimination Discrimination occurs when a person is treated unfairly or less favorably than another person in the same or similar circumstances. It can occur at the time of hiring, during the course of employment or when employment terminates. There are many different ways that discrimination can occur in the workplace but there are five types that are most common namely racial, gender, age, disability and religion discrimination. In the following essay, I am going to discuss these types of discrimination and how people do to prevent discrimination. Firstly, racial discrimination is treating people differently through a process of social division into categories not necessarily related to race. Racial discrimination may occur in the way that someone provides you with goods, facilities and services, including housing. It can also occur in public services, such as health and education and other public services. Racial discrimination may also occur in, the field of employment. For example, there is an African American 18 year old girl job searching. She is applying for jobs almost everywhere in her area. She applies for a job at a supermarket. The supermarket has a "Now Hiring" sign up and has ads in the newspaper about jobs at their supermarket. She fills out the application and presents herself clean and responsible to the hiring manager when she hands in the application. A week later she makes a follow-up phone call to the hiring manager about the application. The hiring manager tells her that she wasn't wanted to interview because she isn't white and looks American.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
