Hostile Work Environments Lawsuits and Cases
Regarding hostile work environments lawsuits and cases, many workers do not understand the legal meanings of commonly used terms. For example, many potential clients describe horrific conditions where the employer, a manager, or supervisor, acts rudely, unfairly or is just plain mean, and they accurately describe the workplace as “hostile”. This is quite true in the common sense of the word. However, the legal sense is different in regards to labor and employment cases and lawsuits. A worker cannot sue an employer because they are mean or unfair, UNLESS the basis for being mean or unfair is something illegal, like discrimination or harassment based in large part on race, gender, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, disability, age (40 or over), marriage status, pregnancy, reporting a crime, refusing to engage in instructed illegal activity, etc.
So, in hostile work environments lawsuits and cases, it is the lawyer’s job to identify the issue or issues accurately and to assess the potential for liability. Our firm has over a quarter century of experience in most areas of worker hostile environments, and we are aggressive in seeking fair compensation for illegal activities.
