Discrimination at work isn’t ever acceptable

| Apr 20, 2018 | Workplace Discrimination |

There isn’t ever a good reason for an employer to discriminate against someone based on things like gender, marital status or other protected statuses. When an employee is subjected to this type of atrocious behavior, he or she might decide that he or she is going to take legal action. This might be difficult to prove, but we are here to help you figure out what direction to take your case.

There are some cases that might not really seem like discrimination when they are. Some workers who work with the public might not realize that their employer has a duty to protect them from harassment and discriminatory actions from customers and vendors when the employee is on the clock.

You have to think about the situation that was occurring when you felt like you were being discriminated against. This might help us determine how to address the matter. Sometimes, the smallest detail is what is going to make the difference about how we proceed.

In some cases, we might look at witness statements to determine if this can help us. There is a fine line to think about here. Coworkers might claim they are willing to help you, but they might back out because of the fear that the employer will retaliate against them. Even though retaliation is illegal, there are some cases in which employers try to get away with it.

We realize that taking legal action against an employer isn’t ever pleasant. You have to remember that you are standing up for your rights when you do this. We can help you every step of the way.
