- Employment Discrimination
State and federal laws prohibit employers from discriminating against employees (or job applicants) on the basis of one's age, race, gender, sexual orientation, sexual identity, handicap, religion, national origin, etc.
- Sexual Harrassment Types of sexual harassment include unwelcome touching, pornographic pictures, sexual innuendoes, sexual jokes/propositions, gestures/sounds/whistling/catcalls, suggestive comments, cartoons/posters, and explicit/offensive emails.
- Hostile Work Environment
Employers are prohibited from creating or permitting a hostile work environment to exist based on age, race, sex, sexual orientation, sexual identity, religion, handicap/disability, ancestry, and national origin.
- Whistleblower / Retaliation
The law not only protects whistleblowers against wrongful termination, but also against unlawful retaliation.
- Wage and Hour Claims
One of the most significant examples of employer abuse in the workplace arises out of violations of federal and state wage and hour laws.
