While some discrimination is intentional, thousands of people have ended up in court for discrimination, when they didn’t realize they were doing it.

For example, at Dominick’s, the number-two deli person is called the Second Deli Man, even if the person is a woman. This may not sound so bad, and standing alone, it probably isn’t. But when the store was hit with a class-action suit by 1,500 women, this was one of the pieces of evidence. Little things can add up to a big headache in court.
