Workplace Mistreatment Among Racial Minority Workers

Today's workforce is becoming more racially diverse; however, little attention has been paid to race and workplace mistreatment. This lecture examines whether the racial category with which one identifies contributes to the frequency of experiencing workplace mistreatment. Further, the research examines if race influences how an employee interprets and responses to workplace mistreatment. Yisheng Peng's lecture is part of a research project sponsored by the Center for "Race," Culture and Social Justice Faculty Summer Research Grant 2018. 

Yiseng Peng, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Industrial/Organization Psychology at Hofstra University is one of the recipients of the Center for "Race," Culture and Social Justice Faculty Summer Research Grants 2018. The major findings of this project will be based upon existing archival data from the 2004, 2006, and 2012 General Social Survey (GSS), which is a nationally representative survey conducted by the National Opinion Research Center. This data set has large sample size and uses valid measurements. A follow-up analysis using an existing data collected from the University setting will also be conducted to enrich research conclusions.
