Have you experienced discrimination in your workplace based on your gender, race, national origin, religious beliefs, sexual orientation, disability, or age? Have you witnessed sexual jokes or lewd behavior that made you feel uncomfortable and powerless in your workplace? Have you complained about discrimination or harassment only to be ignored or, worse yet, lose your job or have your coworkers get revenge for reporting their behavior?
While we all like to believe that sexual harassment and employment discrimination is something that happened many years ago, the fact is that employees are discriminated against and treated unfairly in the modern day workplace.
Discrimination, harassment, and retaliation violate federal employment laws, and you need an experienced employment lawyer to tell you what your rights are in your situation. Understandably, you may feel embarrassed and hesitant to discuss the lewd jokes and inappropriate conduct that are occurring in your workplace; however, our experienced employment law attorneys will listen to your concerns in a calm and safe environment and advise you of a plan to make the unwanted discrimination and harassment stop.
To assist you and your attorney in preparing a possible claim, we recommend that you keep a detailed log of the dates, times, events, and individual(s) involved in the inappropriate acts. Be prepared to bring this log and discuss it at your appointment.
Because employment discrimination claims have very strict time limits, it is imperative that you speak to an experienced employment law attorney as soon as you believe that discriminatory treatment has occurred in your workplace. If you believe that you have been discriminated against in the workplace, please call Hepworth and Associates at 801-872-2222 to schedule your consultation with an experienced employment law attorney today.
