Do You Feel Like You are Being “Targeted” at Work?
Everything at work was fine until a new manager or employee came to your department and now you feel like you are under a microscope. Are they singling you out because they just do not like you or is it something else? It is a tricky situation but if your "gut" is telling you that you are being singled out or being treated differently because of your age (over 40), race, color, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, religion, disability or pregnancy then you need to protect yourself and your job. You need to make a formal complaint in writing to Human Resources. You need to mention that you feel you are being discriminated against because of your age, race, sex, national origin, color, religion, pregnancy or disability. You can also contact us at Thompson Legal Center and we can walk you through this particularly important step of protecting yourself. I cannot tell you how many times I have heard someone describe the straight up discriminatory treatment they received at work but never made a formal complaint. They did not want to be seen as a "whiner" and they were hoping it would stop. Most of the time they are fired and unfortunately, often they cannot take any action against the company because they never complained.
