1) Filing a Discrimination Claim
The very first thing that you should do is find an experienced trial lawyer with experience in this area of the law because it can be complicated. You could conceivably file your own complaint directly with your employer, but that is a mistake. Oftentimes, clients don’t know how to correctly and legally make the complaint so that it gets the attention of Human Resources or the lawyers who work for the employer.
The very best thing that one can do is first hire a trial lawyer experienced in this area of the law, so that they can help you through the process of filing the complaint internally and externally, such as with the Equal Opportunity Commission when appropriate.
2) Hostile Work Environment
A hostile work environment can take many different forms, and they’re all illegal under our nation’s laws and our state’s laws. A hostile work environment can be one that is sexually hostile. A workplace can also be a racially hostile environment in which employees of one national origin or ethnicity are harassing employees of a different national origin or ethnicity. In yet other scenarios, workplaces can involve harassment due to age.
If you find yourself in this sort of situation, the first thing you should do is find and hire an attorney with extensive trial experience and experience in this area of the law. They can guide you through the process of reporting this illegal harassment, not only internally but also externally with the Equal Opportunity Commission.
3) Wrongful Termination
Wrongful termination is the firing of an employee for any reason that is illegal under the law. It could be discrimination due to one’s age, race, sex, or if you’re a whistle blower. If you believe that you are in a situation in which you are being treated illegally by your employer, we stand ready to answer your questions and give you all the information you need to protect your rights and to protect your family from further harm.
