Every worker has the right to a safe, harassment-free workplace and workers may pursue legal action if those rights are impeded.
Harassment is any unwelcome, offensive conduct that is directed toward an employee based on sex, race, age, religion, national origin, disability, or even genetic information. Over the course of our working lives, we will all encounter at least one person who makes petty comments or inappropriate jokes to get a laugh. While one isolated event is not necessarily unlawful, a pattern of behavior that makes for a hostile work environment absolutely is. The Tran Firm is well versed in the federal and state laws that protect employees from this particular type of treatment. An experienced workplace harassment attorney can secure damages through a harassment claim.
