As a working individual, it is your right to feel safe and secure in your workplace. However, if you have had to suffer discrimination or assault in your workplace, know that you don’t have to put up with it. You can take legal action against the perpetrators and get the justice you deserve. A civil rights attorney can represent you in such a situation and help you fight for your rights. Contact our team at Marshall Forman & Schlein LLC to discuss your options.
Firstly, it’s important to understand what constitutes discrimination and assault. Discrimination occurs when an employer or co-worker mistreats you based on protected factors like your race, gender, religion, age, or disability. For example, if you’re a woman and your male co-workers regularly belittle you or make inappropriate comments about your appearance, that’s discrimination. Assault, on the other hand, refers to threatening or completing unwanted physical contact. These actions are not only illegal but can also have severe consequences on a victim’s mental health and well-being.
Assault and discrimination in the workplace can take many forms, from overtly discriminatory practices to subtle, but no less damaging, microaggressions. These actions can have damaging consequences for both the victim and the entire organization. Employers have a legal obligation to create an inclusive and welcoming environment for their employees, and when they fail to do so, it is important to take action.
If you have experienced discrimination or assault at work, your first course of action should be to report it to your employer. If they don’t take any action or try to silence you, it may be time to seek legal help. Our attorneys have 50 years of combined experience fighting for employees who have faced workplace discrimination and assault, and we can represent you too.
An attorney can help you gather evidence to support your claims. For instance, we can interview witnesses, review company policies, and collect documents related to your case. We can also assess the strengths and weaknesses of your case and determine the best course of action going forward. Whether you need to file a lawsuit or negotiate a settlement, we can guide you through the entire process and help you get the compensation you deserve.
It’s also important to note that attorneys can help you even if you’re currently employed. Many victims of discrimination or assault are afraid to come forward because they fear retaliation from their employers. However, your attorney can help protect your rights and ensure that you aren’t punished for seeking justice. Our success sets a standard to create a safer and more inclusive work environment for all employees.
In conclusion, if you’ve been the victim of discrimination or assault in your workplace, know that you don’t have to suffer in silence. A civil rights attorney can represent you and help you fight for your rights. We can gather evidence, assess your case, and guide you through the process of seeking compensation.
