Harassment

There are many forms of harassment that employees may be subjected to in the workplace.  Perhaps most familiar is sexual harassment, where other employees or supervisors make unwanted sexual advances or engage in other inappropriate sexual behavior.  Harassment may take other forms, as well, when the behavior of employees or supervisors creates a work environment that is intimidating, hostile, or offensive to individuals of a particular race, religious creed, color, national origin, ancestry, disability, medical condition, marital status, sex, gender, gender identity, gender expression, age, sexual orientation, or military/veteran status. Whatever form it takes, workplace harassment is illegal, and employees are entitled to proper treatment and compensation when they have been unlawfully harassed at work.

While we would like to think that bigotry and harassment in the workplace is a thing of the past, all too often employees are victims of unacceptable prejudices of employers and others that are imposed upon employees in the workplace.  Payton Employment Law, PC takes special pride in advocating for its employee clients who have been victims of unlawful workplace harassment.
