What is unfair promotion?
Promotion discrimination, or wrongful failure to promote, is a type of workplace discrimination whereby an employee is passed over for promotion for an improper reason or in violation of state or federal law. This may give the aggrieved employee a claim for damages against the employer.
How do you deal with not being promoted at work?
What to Do After You Don’t Get a Promotion
- Let Yourself Feel Your Feelings.
- Assess Your Own Request for a Promotion.

Can I sue my company for not promoting me?
A failure to promote may be the basis of a lawsuit if the facts and law line up on your side. To have a valid discrimination claim against a present or past employer, you would need to show that there was an adverse employment action because of your protected characteristic.

Should I quit if I didnt get the promotion?
You should never quit a job because you were denied a promotion or raise. In fact, that’s definitely the wrong reason to quit your job. But sometimes this punch to the gut will lead to clarity (albeit not immediately). Maybe you’d thrive better in a different work environment or in a new job position altogether.
Should I leave if I don’t get a promotion?
How do you react to politics at work?
The most common reactions to politics at work are either fight or flight. It’s normal human reaction for survival in the wild, back in the prehistoric days when we were still hunter-gatherers. Sure, the office is a modern jungle, but it takes more than just instinctive reactions to win in office politics.
Is avoiding office politics sabotaging your career?
Avoiding office politics can sabotage your career. I know this is not good news for women who may believe that their work alone will get them ahead. But the reality is that it takes both great performance and political savvy to get ahead, especially in a complex competitive workplace. So what do you need to do to get ahead?
Is office gossip sabotaging your career?
When you start to engage in office gossip and associate yourself with people who gossip—whether it’s inside or outside company hours—you sabotage your career. You may feel safe or consider your colleagues trustworthy, but never gossip. You are being watched all the time, and gossip gets around.
Do you use instinctive fight or flight in office politics?
Sure, the office is a modern jungle, but it takes more than just instinctive reactions to win in office politics. Instinctive fight reactions will only cause more resistance to whatever you are trying to achieve; while instinctive flight reactions only label you as a pushover that people can easily take for granted.
