What can I do when I see discrimination in a workplace?

I work with my sister and she is gay. When she was hired nobody knew about it. But now that everybody knows she has been getting treated differently. Even the head people are writing her up for the stupidest reasons. She is the hardest and most caring worker in the workplace. She does her job and does it well. She is great at what she does and now she is worried that she is going to lose her job just because she is gay that they are finding ways to get her in trouble. I don't know what to do about this. Even other people are noticeing but feel like if they butt in that they are going to lose their jobs too. I don't know how much longer I can watch this go on. She is my sister and I love her no matter what.

Set the example to the rest.. How you see her as now shouldn't depict the way she should be treated any different.. She's still the same person. Love and set the example

Just be her friend when nobody else is and stand up for her, there is nothing wrong with being gay and you shouldn't discriminate people who are gay. just be that one person she can talk to

Stand up for her!!!!! But don't do anything that can cause your job! Unless you won't stop until she gets treated with R-E-S-P-E-C-T!!! Good luck:)

Stand up for her and report their asses for discrimination no one deserves to be treated like that. This is what's wrong with the world today Is that everyone judges others based on if they look different or don't share their sexual preferences no wonder the worlds going to crap.

Report it with detailed information, specifics on each act of discrimination, sit down with her and write it all down. Then I would go to a lawyer and get a free consultation, and in that explain your worries about reporting it, if you are low income you could either go to legal aid, or possibly modest means attorneys, that work on a sliding fee scale.
