Discrimination and Harassment

Various laws make it illegal for Employers, through the actions of both co-workers and management, to subject employees to and/or to take adverse employment action against employees based on their membership in a protected class, like their age, race, gender, disability, national origin, religion or sexual orientation.  Examples of adverse employment actions include constructive discharge, termination, refusal to hire, demotion, discrimination or harassment, and exposure to a hostile work environment.

While treatment that an employee might consider “unfair” or “unprofessional” might not rise to the level of being “unlawful,” when that treatment is based on or due to the membership in one of the protected classes, it is prohibited.  If you feel that you have been subjected to or had an adverse employment action taken against you, because of your membership in one of the above classes, or if you wish to further discuss your situation to determine if these laws might apply to you, please contact Jensen Law Office, LLC.
