Harassment at work is against the law

Employee Rights

October 11, 2018

Employers of five or more employees cannot discriminate against job applicants and employees because of a protected category, or retaliate against them because they have asserted their rights under the law.  Harassment based on a protected category against an employee, an applicant, an unpaid intern or volunteer, or a contractor is also unlawful. Harassment is prohibited in all workplaces, even those with fewer than five employees.  Contact The Krolikowski Law Firm if you have suffered discrimination or harassment.

Civil Rights

June 14, 2018

Employment: California has some of the strongest civil rights laws in the nation.  The Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) is the main law prohibiting employment discrimination which prohibits employment discrimination based on race or color; religion; national origin or ancestry, physical disability; mental disability or medical condition; marital status; sex or sexual orientation; age, with respect to persons over the age of 40; and pregnancy, childbirth, or related medical conditions. The FEHA also prohibits sexual harassment and retaliation against anyone for opposing discrimination, sexual harassment or for filing a complaint, testifying, or assisting in proceedings under the FEHA. You have the right to be free from unlawful discrimination, harassment, retaliation, and wrongful termination.  If your rights were violated, you have a right by law to compensation for medical bills, hospital charges, ambulance bills, missed work and other costs incurred.  These are types of “economic damages” recoverable in California.  You also are entitled to compensation for physical pain, mental suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, disfigurement, physical impairment, inconvenience, grief, anxiety, humiliation and emotional distress.  These are types of “general damages” recoverable in California. We will help you navigate the maze of medical professionals, insurance companies, and courts to enforce your rights to be made whole. Don’t waive your rights.  Contact The Krolikowski Law Firm to review your case.

Sexual Harassment

June 14, 2018

Employment Law Information Sexual harassment includes unwelcome conduct of a sexual nature that interferes with a person’s work environment. Sexual harassment is any conduct or communication that is unwelcome by the person toward which it is directed, that is of a sexual nature (such as advances, requests for sexual favors, body contact) that has the purpose or effect of unreasonably interfering with an individual’s work by creating an intimidating, hostile, or offensive work or academic environment. When you are in a work situation where a co-worker/supervisor acts inappropriate, you reject the conduct or ask them to stop, but the conduct continues anyway or gets worse, you usually have the basis for a harassment claim. Many employers have Human Resources departments, which are there to help. But when you find that words and HR complaints are not enough to stop the harassment, it is time to call a lawyer. The Krolikowski Law Firm is here to help you with any sexual harassment issues you may face at work. Contact us today for a free consultation.
