This is the original problem from an employee...
Since I joined the company I have been discriminated. Firstly the manager changed my position from admin to another position, meaning earning less.
The manager put all his anger on his voice when speaks to me. I am scary to ask anything or to report some weird stuff I have been seen, because he'd shout at me. He has been humiliating me in front of staff, and due to this some staff don't respect me anymore. Also some staff started bullying me.
It has been affecting my health badly, and I do not know what to do. I can not resign my employment because I need it.
Can someone help please?

The last person who gave you advice did not address your problem well, I believe. To suggest it isn't discrimination is a bit premature because I try to read between the lines to determine what the underlying problem may be.

This person needs help and just saying to them ..."you need to learn to deal with it either way. Don't throw around the "D" word when it isn't the case." is NOT advice.

To the Employee:

First of all, I want you to know I am going to try and be sensitive to your situation. I happened to notice that some sentences contain some errors in grammar or structure in the way the sentence is written. This leads me to believe you may be foreign born and English is your second language. Are you?

If so, that may be the reason your manager speaks in an angry tone, shouts at you, humiliates you, and does nothing when other employees start disrespecting you, thereby encouraging them to continue the disrepect. This IS a cause for a DISCRIMINATION case.

1. Your manager can't change your position without approval from HR. Does your company have an HR department?

If you are not able to do administrative tasks, he needs to tell you (in writing also) the REASON(S) WHY.

2. You don't say how long you have been working for this company, but if you've been there over 6 months (past the probationary time) and was doing the administrative job well enough before, then you are entitled to a reason why that position changed.

3. Go to your Human Rights Division in your state (every state has one) and you can also file a complaint with the EEOC (Equal Employment Opportunity). Ask someone outside of work where this is located and go there to talk to someone to find out if you have a case.

4. Keep a record of when you are being yelled at, for what reason and who is "bullying" you.

Bullying can happen because the bully may not like someone's age, culture, looks, gender, religious beliefs, etc. That's DISCRIMINATION!!

What is happening is affecting your health and your ability to do your job in an environment free from stress. There's also the constant fear of being fired which is not a good feeling.

Do not resign! Make sure you go to HR to document all the problems when they occur. That is YOUR PROOF that you took steps to correct it. From there, if you win your case, you may be entitled to BACK PAY at the rate you had from your administrative position.

Hope this helps!

This isnt discrimination. It may be bullying, but you need to learn to deal with it either way. Dont throw around the "D" word when it isn't the case.
