Southern California Hostile Work Environment Attorney
Fighting To Protect Employees’ Rights
Employees throughout the nation are protected by federal laws and legislation against discrimination and harassment in the workplace. Despite these numerous laws, which also encompass various state discrimination and harassment laws, many employees are still subjected to a variety of unwelcome and unlawful conduct. A hostile work environment develops when an employee experiences any form of harassment that interferes with his or her work performance and/or creates an intimidating or offensive work environment.
A hostile environment can be a result from:
- Third parties
- Sexual harassment
- Nonsexual harassment
As an employee with numerous rights enforced by state and federal laws, you should never have to tolerate any form of harassment. If you or your loved one believes that you are a victim of a hostile work environment, then trust your case to proven, passionate Southern California employment attorneys who can fight to protect your rights and your eligibility to recover the damages and compensation you deserve.
Employer Responsibility And Liability
Employers are ultimately responsible for providing their employees with a safe and reasonable working environment. Although cases can become complex depending on the circumstances involved, employers are generally always liable for a hostile work environment when a supervisor or management employee are responsible for the harassment. Employers can also be held liable for a hostile work environment caused by a nonsupervisory employee when they knew, or should have known, about the harassment and failed to take any action to prevent or stop the conduct.
Fighting On Your Behalf
In addition to helping you fully understand your rights and the laws that can be applied to the facts of your case, our legal team makes the effort to always fight zealously on your behalf. Although employees are protected against harassment and hostile work environments by various state and federal laws, employers still tend to aggressively defend themselves and dispute claims. Employers are concerned with protecting their assets and their public image, and they often use their extensive resources to deflect claims entirely or pay victims as little as possible.
