Examining if requirements to conform amount to discrimination

While there are different definitions of professionalism depending on who you ask, which industry is being considered and the environment of the workplace, there are general standards across the board that many business professionals see as crucial. While developing guidelines for acceptable behavior and appearance is important for many businesses in Indiana, they must be careful to ensure that these policies do not inhibit the right of employees to be themselves. 

Examining the idea of protected classes

When talking about discrimination in Indiana work places, the term "protected class" often comes up. Although this typically refers to the categories listed in the state and federal civil rights legislation, people may also use it to talk about other forms of discrimination.

How can you develop a tolerance in the workplace?

A critical part of organizational success within your company is developing an environment where your coworkers tolerate each other and are respectful of differing views and backgrounds. While your employer in Indiana is primarily responsible for setting the precedence for tolerance, you can support those efforts by making an effort to be inclusive and willing to work with others who are different than you. 

Can dress codes constitute a form of discrimination?

Many Indiana corporations and businesses want their employees to maintain a professional look or a style of dress that comports with the values of the company. A dress code is generally not a problem. However, if a dress code is being unfairly applied in certain circumstances, it could constitute a type of discrimination.
