We are vigilant
We at Gonzalo Law recognize that discrimination is not always intentional , as we may all have unconscious biases that can be difficult to identify or overcome. If an employee unconsciously discriminate, we will support them through training and counseling. We will support them also by implementing processes that mitigate biases. Should this employee show an unwillingness to change in their unconscious discriminatory behavior, they will be subject to termination of employment.
