Additional Information

Trainer Comments: Even well-meaning actions can be discriminatory, especially when they take the form of misplaced paternalism. Taking employment actions that you believe are in the employee’s “best interests” are discrimination if they are based on stereotypes about a disability, or sex, or any other characteristic protected by law.
