Discrimination is an ugly reality. That is why both state and federal laws protect qualified individuals from discrimination in various aspects of employment, including hiring, discipline, pay, promotion, and any other terms and conditions of employment. – MORE [Contact Us]
Sexual harassment takes many forms. Some harassment may be very overt, such as unwelcoming touching or sexual advances. In addition, sexual harassment may also take the form of requests for sexual favors in exchange for better employment conditions or to avoid adverse employment actions such as demotion or dismissal. – MORE [Contact Us]
Whistleblowers are heroes. It is too easy and too tempting to look the other way when an employer dumps illegal toxic waste or allows sexual harassment in the workplace. Standing up can be hard, but it is the right thing to do. Allowing employers to intimidate whistleblowers undermines the rights of all employees. – MORE [Contact Us]
Harassment can include not only severe incidents such as assaults and threats but also jokes, use of slurs or derogatory language, or posting insensitive cartoons or other materials. When this conduct becomes so severe as to create a hostile work environment, it becomes harassment. – MORE [Contact Us]
