A Comprehensive Employment Law Practice
Whether you are at the beginning, middle, or end of your career with your employer, you have rights that deserve protection. G&H will safeguard those rights and work with you to resolve any problem you may be facing in a proactive and cost effective manner. Our firm handles a wide range of cases involving employees’ rights and employee vs. employer disputes, including:
Sexual harassment in the workplace is a form of discrimination and it is a violation of both state and federal law. It can come in a variety of forms and includes unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature, or even repeated degrading or humiliating sexual joke, gestures, or comments. In any form, sexual harassment is unlawful and should never be tolerated in the workplace.
It is illegal for an employer to discriminate in any facet of the workplace, including hiring, firing, and everything in between. Employment discrimination occurs when an individual is adversely discriminated against due to any number of factors, including race, skin color, national origin, gender, disability, religion, or age. Specific types of discrimination include:
Where an employee is discharged from employment for unlawful reasons – such as their race, gender, sexual orientation, or age –that action amounts to a wrongful termination.
Retaliation includes any adverse action taken against an employee for filing a lawful complaint with their employer or supporting another employee’s complaint. For example, where and employee alleges harassment or discrimination and is later punished for making that complaint, that punishment amounts to unlawful retaliation. Employers also are prohibited from punishing employees for exercising other rights assured to them like requesting a reasonable accommodation for a disability or applying for medical leave under the Family Medical Leave Act.
