LGBT Discrimination in the Workplace

Bullying, of any kind, can significantly impact on an individual’s ability to do their job and their own personal health and wellbeing.

Intimidation, threats, berating, teasing and/or overworking are just some of the many issues victims of workplace bullying endure on a day-to-day basis. Workplace bullying of LGBT employees can have a serious negative impact on individuals and on companies. Everyone in a company benefits from recognizing and stopping workplace bullying.

Bullying is something that occurs in all walks of life and is not something that stops when you leave school. Bullying in the workplace is a very common issue and employers have a commitment to you as a member of staff to ensure that you’re free from discrimination and harassment within the work place.

Bullying and harassment are terms that are often used interchangeably by individuals and definitions include bullying as a form of harassment. It doesn’t matter how you define it, if you feel that you’re being bullied, harassed or discriminated against because of anything; you need to do something about it!

The original rainbow flag, called the Freedom Flag, was devised by Gilbert Baker in 1978. The design has undergone several revisions since its debut with 8 colored stripes, and today the most common variant consists of 6 stripes: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and violet.
