According to Glassdoor, there has been a 30% increase in job listings related to diversity and inclusion since 2018. However, companies in California and throughout the country still have issues when it comes to treating their workers properly. A Glassdoor survey found that 60% of respondents had either been victims of workplace harassment or saw others victimized on the job. This is in spite of the fact that roughly 75% of companies that took part in the survey said that they had a diverse workforce.

Research has shown that workers of all ages, genders and sexual orientations can be victims of harassment. Men were more likely to report that they were victims of ageism or knew those who were discriminated against for being part of the LGBTQ+ community. Overall, 45% of the respondents said that they had experienced ageism at work or knew others who had been treated differently because of their age.

Furthermore, 33% said that they had personally been mistreated for their sexual orientation or had seen others experience negative consequences because of their lifestyle. Younger workers were more likely to report discrimination based on race, gender or sexual orientation. Researchers say that this could be because older and younger employees have different views as it relates to what harassment looks like.

An employee who believes that an employment law violation has occurred may want to meet with an attorney who may be helpful whether a case is resolved in court, through arbitration or through private settlement talks. Hiring and payroll records, the timing of performance reviews and manager statements could all be used as proof that a company has engaged in ageism or other forms of discrimination.
