Keeping The Workplace Safe From Harassment And Discrimination
Every worker has the right to perform their job and earn an income without having to endure inappropriate comments suggestions, behavior, advances or other harassment. Workers also have a right to report such behavior to management and other officials without fear of retaliation. Both men and women often face such behavior, making the workplace intolerable.
The attorneys at Brenes Law Group hold employers accountable for creating such a hostile workplace environment.
What Constitutes A Hostile Workplace?
It is important to remember that employers are accountable for the actions of their staff in actions that create a hostile workplace. This can include:
- Failing to train management and employees concerning what constitutes workplace harassment and discrimination
- Not monitoring behavior of staff concerning harassing behavior
- The failure to implement policies and procedures that would address harassment and discrimination issues at the workplace
- Not having procedures in place allowing employees to register complaints about working conditions without fear of retaliation
If you are facing harassment by an employer, supervisor, or coworker (including claims of sexual harassment and bullying), you may be entitled to compensation for your lost wages, benefits and emotional distress.
