The best way to fight workplace discrimination is to report the discrimination to the human resources department, and then allow the employer a period of time to eliminate the discrimination.
If the discrimination continues or if the employer refuses to address the behavior, then the employee should consult a local attorney to see what rights he or she has in filing a complaint with the federal or state agency that enforces the laws on discrimination. In real life, employers rarely listen to the complaints of an employee who makes these accusations at the time he or she quits.
Once the employee has turned in his or her notice, most human resources departments consider that person to be an unreliable source, someone who is disgruntled and is out for revenge. This is true even when the employee provides written evidence of the discrimination along with his or her notice to quit. In addition, an employee who quits may have difficulty obtaining unemployment benefits.
