Subtle Bias in the Workplace

November 30th, 2017

Philadelphia Employment Lawyers descibe subtle bias in the workplace and how it can impact an employee. When we think about harassment or discrimination in the workplace, we usually think of the more obvious signs. However, there are many subtle forms of bias that also exist at work that are not always taken seriously. Employees are far more likely to experience subtle forms of bias than the more obvious variety.

Subtle bias does not always point to a definitive cause. For example, a woman may be designated as the note taker at a meeting among men, or given different tasks that she is overqualified for. Situations such as these do not always give rise to obvious proof of bias, but they can bring down the morale of the employee. Over time, discrimination can create job dissatisfaction and stress, and can have a negative impact on job performance and physical or mental health.

Sometimes the types of discrimination described above are unintentional and may come from a manager’s unconscious beliefs about certain groups of people. This type of bias can be hard to prove, but it is not impossible. For someone who feels that they may be experiencing bias at work, it would be helpful to keep a log of such incidents with names, dates, and circumstances.
