People depend on their jobs for their livelihood, and many spend majority of their time each week in a workplace setting. Discrimination can make the workplace environment toxic for an individual, affecting his or her attendance and job performance. If you’re a victim, you may not know where to turn. You may fear retaliation or embarrassment from your employer if you confront them, making a bad situation worse.
At the office of The Povman Law Firm, our team of highly skilled and experienced attorneys can advocate on your behalf if you have suffered from workplace harassment or discrimination. Further, we will also advocate for employees who have been the victim of retaliation when they complain about workplace harassment or discrimination.
Employees have certain rights, such as the right to not be discriminated against, the right to be paid in accordance with the law, and the right to take leave for family and medical reasons. While federal employment laws have set the standard, many states have implemented workplace laws that provide additional protection for employees.
