Coronavirus Workplace Discrimination

Sadly, scapegoating groups of people amid a pandemic is nothing new. A recent poll found that one in three Americans have witnessed someone blaming Asian people for the coronavirus outbreak. Meanwhile, there has been a surge in hate incidents against Asian Americans.

These false assumptions and biases can extend to the workplace and foster a hostile, untenable work environment.

What Is Workplace Discrimination?

It’s against the law for an employer to discriminate against an employee or applicant on the basis of protected characteristics such as race, color, religion, sex, and national origin. Unfortunately, this doesn’t stop some employers from doing exactly that.

Workplace discrimination can take many forms including slurs, stereotyping, derogatory comments, and adverse employment actions such as demotions and firings. These acts can lead to an inequitable workplace where some employees are treated more favorably than others.

What Are Some Examples of Workplace Discrimination Amid COVID-19?

Sadly, some people associate COVID-19 with specific groups of people. These stigmas can be hurtful. What’s more, they can lead to discriminatory acts. You may have grounds for legal action if:

  • You were fired or demoted because of your national origin
  • You were terminated or had your hours cut because your employer assumed your age put you at greater risk for health complications
  • Your employer refused to provide reasonable accommodations for your disability
  • An employer created a job posting that excludes applicants of a specific ethnicity
