Discrimination & Harassment in the Workplace
Do you work in an environment that you consider to be intimidating, offensive,
or hostile? Among other things, this could include sexual innuendo, romantic
advances, physical attacks or threats, insults, name-calling, bullying,
distasteful jokes, racial or ethnic slurs, comments about physical appearance,
and interference with work performance.
Unlawful discrimination can also occur if you have received negative treatment
or been treated differently for being a member of a protected class (race,
age, gender, disability, etc.). Such treatment could include:
- Failure to hire
- Terminating disability leave
- Failure to promote
- Firing, demotion, or other disciplinary action
- Unfair terms and conditions of employment
- Changed compensation or assignments
- Failure to provide reasonable accommodations for disabilities
If you are the victim of such discrimination or harassment, the first step
to resolving the issue is to file a complaint with your supervisor or
the human resources department. This is an essential component in proving
your case in court, should you need to take the matter to the judicial
system for a resolution. If you need to file a lawsuit against your employer
for discrimination or harassment,
Addair Law Office PLLC is here to guide you through the entire process.
You may be concerned that filing a complaint for workplace discrimination
might get you fired or result in other negative consequences for your
job. However, it is illegal for your employer to take such adverse action
against you for filing this type of complaint if it is done in good faith.
If they do, you could have a claim for retaliation.
Attorney Mike Addair has represented numerous clients who have been retaliated
against for asserting their rights to be free from discrimination and
harassment in the workplace. If you believe that your employer has retaliated
against you for filing a complaint about a violation of your rights, reach
out to our Putnam County employment law attorney as soon as possible serving
clients throughout Putnam and Cabell County.
