Unequal Opportunity

Front Cover
WingSpan Publishing, 2011 - Discrimination in employment - 188 pages
It is the job of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission to address private sector job bias complaints alleging discrimination based on disability, religion, and/or national origin and weed them out of the American workplace. Yet, in recent years, such complaints have hit record highs. Inside the volumes of statistics are personal stories, personal disappointments, and personal consternation. Unequal Opportunity presents the barbed kernels of EEOC incidents, complaints, and issues and demonstrates that however much enforcement the government may bring to bear, discrimination still exists, and is still disrupting the lives of those on the front line of the battle. Some of these stories resulted in settlements, while others simply moved on with the scar of discrimination embossed on their psyche. In all cases, the lives of complainants and defendants were changed forever. These stories represent a cross-section of the race, age, and gender discrimination that women of all colors face while trying to perform a solid day's work in America. This book is not intended to give legal advice, but is intended to provide insight to trends based on the interviews and stories of women who have endured such hardships.
