New Jersey Hostile Work Environment Lawyers
Protecting You From a Hostile Work Environment
Nobody should have to put up with a hostile work environment. If you are being harassed or discriminated against at work, and your employer has done nothing to stop the action, you should discuss your rights and legal options with a New Jersey hostile work environment attorney.
Some of the cases we at The Epstein Law Firm handle involve:
- The sending and receiving of inappropriate e-mails
- Constant joking or sexual innuendos
- Sexual harassment
- Threats of termination or a salary decrease if the employee refuses to do something inappropriate
- Discriminatory comments
- Failure to promote an employee due to discrimination
If you have encountered any of these situations, contact The Epstein Law Firm today to explore your legal options and rights by speaking with one of our experienced attorneys during a free initial consultation.
Experienced With the Law and Technical Components of Employment Law Claims
Our firm has extensive experience representing clients in all employment matters involving harassment, discrimination, threats of termination and other hostile actions. We have a thorough understanding of state and federal laws, such as the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination (LAD), Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). We are skilled at applying them to our clients’ cases. Our goal is to protect their rights as an employee and achieve favorable outcomes for them.
Proving Your Claim – Documenting the Hostile Behavior
As the victim, it is important that you document any incidents that you feel are hostile or harassing. You can save harassing e-mails and preserve other evidence that you feel would be beneficial to your case.
As New Jersey hostile work environment attorneys, we also advise our clients to keep copies of incident reports or notices to the manager about the hostile behavior. This will show that you reported the issue, and yet it continues to be a problem.
Your efforts may aid us significantly in showing evidence of the hostile workplace and seeking restitution on your behalf — whether that is financial recovery, your rightful promotion or simply stopping the behavior.
