Discrimination and harassment are among the most common employment-related legal complaints from employees. Fortunately, federal and state law protect employees and employees from harassment and discrimination on the basis of sex, race, religion, sexual orientation (actual or perceived), ethnicity, age, and more. Discrimination and harassment are illegal in the workplace, whether they are coming from either the employer, or a boss, or a coworker.
Often, in an employment situation other problems for employees may arise. Many employers choose to disregard employment laws that offer employees legal protections. In some cases, they refuse to pay employees their sick time or vacation time they have accrued. They may characterize an employee as an independent contractor, when the employee is actually an employee, in order to skirt the law. Some employees are wrongfully terminated, or are not paid overtime.
Employees aren’t the only parties who may need help in an employment law situation. Employers should create employer-employee handbooks, which can be hard without the assistance of an employment law attorney. Employees may also need assistance with workplace investigations, if accusations of harassment, discrimination, or other improper conduct are made. Liberty Law can assist employers with their legal situations.
