Working for a living is hard. Most adults will tell you that.
But your job should not be harder than it needs to be. You should not go to work with dread. You should not fear your boss.
You should enter the workplace knowing that the work environment is fair to all.
Yet this does not always happen. Your boss might harass you. You might find yourself the victim of discrimination. Or your work might wrongfully terminate you.
There are numerous ways in which your employer might violate your rights. We are here to protect them. And make sure that they never violate anyone’s rights again.
Discrimination is a common workplace violation. It occurs when your employer affects your employment status based on protected characteristics like race, gender, sex, national origin,religion, and disability.
Discrimination can come in many forms. Sometimes there is no direct evidence of discrimination. Direct evidence usually means that you heard someone say something.
For example, a supervisor who calls someone an employee “n-word.”
Most people, however, no longer openly discriminate. Instead, they do it without saying a word.
This is why we normally prove discrimination cases with circumstantial evidence. Circumstantial evidence is bits of evidence that piece together to prove a case.
How did the boss treat other people? Was there any microaggression? Did the minority employee receive the same advancement opportunities?
These are typical questions we might ask in pursuit of gathering circumstantial evidence.
If you believe that you were discriminated against, we can help. We will file a lawsuit on your behalf. And you will receive compensation for your unfair treatment.
Harassment is another common employment violation. Harassment occurs when an employee, usually a supervisor, targets another employee with unwelcome conduct.
That conduct must be objectively unreasonable and severe or persistent.
Harassment must be based on a protected characteristic. Yet many employees fall into this category.
It is not uncommon to see harassment based on age, disability, religion, and race.
If you are facing harassment, your first step could be to report it to your work. If that does not stop the harassment, give us a call.
We can help with more than just discrimination and harassment. There are other ways in which your employer might have violated your employment rights.
We are here to assist you with all of your employment-related needs.
