  • Inappropriate comments or touching
  • Demeaning behavior from management or co-workers
  • Desk moved to an inconvenient area away from your department coworkers
  • Lunch hour reduced or changed to an inconvenient time
  • Inappropriate calendars, posters or materials posted on walls
  • Inappropriate e-mail jokes and phone messages
  • Assigned work tasks outside your area of skill level
  • Harsh supervisor disapproval for insignificant mistakes
  • Threats of being fired or demoted

Do Not Put Up With a Hostile Work Environment. Let Us Help You Protect Your Job.

Employers have an obligation to prevent harassment in the workplace and ensure that an employee who complains about harassment is not retaliated against. It is illegal to fire an employee for filing a complaint about a hostile environment. Many people wonder how they can benefit by hiring a lawyer. Plain and simple, harassment and retaliation for complaining about harassment are illegal. In many cases, employers know they face stiff penalties for breaking federal and state workplace regulations. We are strong negotiators and trial attorneys. We work to help you recover money damages and protect your job. You may recover significant compensation and also improve things for everyone on the job.
