One example of discrimination in the work place can be due to gender. Such situation could arise, when an employee earns more money than that of the opposite sex despite holding the same amount of experience, this is a deliberate discrimination. Discrimination can also occur inadvertently, for example, an employer could ask for all employees are clean shaven, which, could be a disadvantage to some religious groups.
By making sure everyone is given the same opportunities regardless of any disability the may have. i.e. hearing problems not being bias towards anyone.
