1. Learn how to fire well. One scenario that often leads to discrimination suits is a poorly planned or badly executed termination. In a well-executed termination, the employee should leave knowing why they were fired and why they, the employee, and the company are better off.
2. Take employee complaints seriously. While the daily grind of the workplace and difficult employees may tempt those in management roles to blow off complaints, such apathy will often serve to enhance workplace conflicts.
3. Discipline employees carefully. Be sure to know all the facts and have hard evidence before pursuing disciplinary action against employees. In cases of serious disciplinary action where there is a high likelihood an employee may allege discrimination, consider consulting legal counsel before taking any final action.
4. Create a paper trail. In addition to having a clear complaint process, it is important to document complaints as well as all conversations and investigatory actions involved in assessing the complaint.
5. Hire fairly. Displaying a trend of not hiring a protected class of individuals could lead to claims of discrimination down the road. Asking about an employment candidate’s age, sex, disability, religion, race, color, or marital status in an interview can be interpreted as proof of intent to discriminate.
6. Be transparent. In addition to being told what is prohibited, general employee training should also inform employees of their right to a discrimination free workplace and educate employees on how supervisors should be handling complaints.
7. Educate all employees about workplace discrimination. Training for lower level employees should define discrimination and emphasize that such behavior will not be tolerated in the workplace.
8. Thoroughly train managers and supervisors. Managers and supervisors need to be educated on what discrimination actually is and be able to recognize the signs of harassment, discrimination, and retaliation.
9. Create (or revise) policy manuals. This is a simple, easy, and rather effective strategy for preventing discrimination lawsuits. Every company should include within their manuals a strong anti-discrimination statement and comprehensive anti-harassment policy.
10. Cultivate a workplace intolerant of discrimination or harassment. While the rest of the tips on this list are more specific in nature, they all circle back to this overarching concept of cultivating an environment that will not tolerate discrimination.
