Most Minneapolis residents work hard to make a living. And, given that they spend most of their waking hours in their office, it is safe to say they consider their office their second, if not first, home. This is why it is so important for their workplace to be a safe place for them — both emotionally and physically.
Discrimination in the workplace can pose emotional and physical threats to the person facing it. When an employee finds himself or herself being sexually harassed, they may become emotionally distraught at the thought of returning to work where someone is making inappropriate comments and their physical safety might be at risk if someone is touching them inappropriately. An employee that requires special and reasonable accommodations due their age or disability but is not being given them might injure himself or herself just to complete their job. Discrimination can exist in many forms, as discussed many times on this blog, and can cause various types of trauma in the people being subjected to it.
