Workplace Harassment Lawyers in Irvine

Striving to Improve Your Work Environment

The average employee spends 30-40 hours a week at work. As such, it is important that a safe workplace environment is provided and maintained by the employer. If you have encountered any type of harassment at work, it can begin to wear on your morale and performance.

State and federal laws (such as the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, etc.) exist to protect individuals like yourself from inappropriate workplace conduct. However, this does not mean all employers will take action when faced with a harassment claim. At Badame Law Group, we can help you seek recourse if you have experienced illegal treatment at work. We are experienced employment law attorneys who are dedicated to defending your rights.

What Is Considered Harassment?

Unwelcome and illegal conduct that involves the belittling of your character related to the following are considered harassment and workplace discrimination:

  • Color
  • Race
  • Gender
  • Religious belief
  • Disability
  • Similar protected characteristic

A few examples of workplace harassment under these terms include:

  • Intimidation
  • Verbal threats
  • Physical assault
  • Mockery and insults
  • Slurs and jokes
  • Interference with job performance
  • Display of offense materials
  • Creating a hostile work environment

When a complaint is made about harassment in a workplace of 15 or more workers, the employer must conduct an investigation. The employer must report the situation to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. They can carry out a more in-depth investigation and help protect your safety in the workplace.

Protection Against Sexual Harassment

Although it is not the only type of workplace harassment, sexual harassment is one of the most common forms. Sexual harassment can take many forms and does not have to be physical in form to qualify as illegal activity.

A few examples of sexual harassment include:

  • Stalking
  • Lewd communication
  • Lewd jokes
  • Pornography in the workplace
  • Unwelcome physical contact
  • Unwelcome sexual advances
  • Firing/demotion as a result of refusing advances

Pursuing Legal Action & Holding Employers Liable

Every employer acts differently when you report illegal conduct in the workplace. Some may take immediate action to remedy the situation. It can be difficult to determine and prove who is liable for workplace harassment, especially if an employer retaliates against you. This could include failure to pay wages, demotion, or wrongful termination.

Whatever the situation may be, our Irvine workplace harassment attorneys at Badame Law Group are here to protect your rights. We understand how stressful it can be to not only face harassment but be in fear of retaliation.
