Harassment is unwanted conduct of an unlawful nature. If the harassing conduct is so severe and frequent that it affects the victim’s ability to do her or his job, this is called a “hostile work environment.”
Harassment can take many forms.
- When a supervisor, manager or employer demands sex in return for a raise, continued employment or promotion, this is sexual harassment.
- Off-color jokes, pin-up photographs of naked men or women
- Internet pornography on work computers
- Unwanted touching
If it’s determined that you are a victim of unlawful workplace discrimination, we can help you in multiple ways.
# 1 We will Make It Stop. If we are retained early enough, we can sometimes convince your employer to intervene on your behalf. The offending supervisor may be fired or relocated, or if you desire, you may be moved to a different location. We’ll help you through the process, and make sure your employer follows the law throughout.
#2 Negotiate an Exit. In many discrimination cases, our clients simply want “out.” We can often negotiate an exit package that will protect your reputation as a good employee, protect your access to unemployment benefits, negotiate potential severance options and your ability to get a new job.
#3 File a Discrimination Lawsuit. If your employer is not willing to cooperate and negotiate an out-of-court resolution, a lawsuit may be in your best interest. We will discuss with you all the risks and possible benefits involved so that you will know what to expect, and decide whether or not you want to sue your employer.
One thing you CAN be sure of, Whitehead Employment Law will continuously fight for your rights every step of the way.
