Your Employer May Be Engaging in Discrimination If...
Most employees are not seeking strictly lateral job opportunities. Employees look to improve their standing in the workplace. Denying an employee first crack at internal jobs is a major way to stunt their professional and financial growth opportunities.
If your employer is not making internal staff aware of in-house job opportunities, they are denying internal candidates the chance to apply for positions that could bring them new skills, increase their job level, increase their salary, etc.
When jobs are open at your company, are favored employees—always White—pre-selected for the positions? In other words, when someone resigns or retires from a job, is a White staffer selected to move into their position or is a White person hired for the job –without allowing Blacks or other so-called minorities the opportunity to apply for the position?
If that is the case, this behavior could indicate that your employer is engaging in discriminatory practices by denying Blacks and other minorities the opportunity to apply for internal jobs and to advance within the company.
