Many workers report witnessing or experiencing discrimination

Discrimination continues to be a common experience for workers in Massachusetts and across the country. According to a survey conducted by an online job site, almost 60% of all workers in the U.S. have personally experienced or witnessed discrimination on the job. Workers reported different experiences with various types of discrimination, including race, sex, age and disability discrimination. The site said that employees want a safer, more diverse and inclusive environment, and many are concerned about aspects of their identity and experiences being used against them in the workplace.

Sex discrimination continues to hold back women workers

Women in Massachusetts continue to face substantial and pervasive employment discrimination on the job. High-profile cases have drawn attention to the issue of sexual harassment, especially in industries like entertainment and technology. However, there are a wide range of factors that contribute to sex discrimination on the job. Women find themselves being denied opportunities and promotions or facing termination due to stereotypes and other discriminatory factors. At the same time, many valid discrimination claims are never pursued because women fear that they will face retaliation on the job.
