Problems Commonly Arise in the Workplace
There are numerous ways that harassment can arise in the workplace. Such behavior may range from persistent microaggressions to physical violence.
Harassment may look like:
- Contractual discrepancies
- Disability, age, race, gender, religion, pregnancy, and other
- Diversity issues
- Intimidation tactics
- Psychological harassment
- Retaliation claims
- Sexual harassment
- Unfair drug testing
- Verbal abuse
- Workplace violence
- Wrongful termination
There is no set way that harassment manifests, so if you feel as though you have been mistreated in a manner not listed above, don’t hesitate to report the behavior to a superior and reach out to an attorney to discuss your case.
Helping Businesses Prevent Harassment Disputes
In addition to helping employees fight workplace harassment, we can also help businesses create a work culture that will prevent harassment from becoming a serious issue. Additionally, if you are a small or large business owner and your company has recently been sued or is under investigation for an infraction, it’s important to contact an employment law attorney straightaway.
You’ll want to select one that has a verifiable successful track record in California employment law defense cases. When you interview prospective attorneys, ensure that they have an attentive, knowledgeable team, as well as extensive trial experience in both federal and state court.
Employment litigation can get complicated and ugly in a hurry. To avoid costly mistakes that can hurt both your financial bottom-line and your company’s reputation, enlist the help of a legal professional that has experience in numerous types of dispute resolution proceedings, including mediations, arbitrations, and other litigation avoidance techniques, as well as suits settled in court.
Founding attorney Chambord Benton-Hayes not only provides legal representation for claims and lawsuits, but she also can provide preventative counsel that keeps you in compliance with local, state, and federal laws. Your company should consider consulting an attorney for general counsel regarding company protocols and procedures, employee handbook reviews, labor relations, and creating preventative policies that keep harassment and other problems at bay.
