Workplace Discrimination

Workplace discrimination is a distressing reality that many employees face on a daily basis, despite state and federal protections. 

Workplace Harassment

A place of work is a place where employees should be allowed to conduct their responsibilities in a productive and welcoming environment…

What Is Workplace Discrimination?

You may be familiar with the word “discrimination.” But do you know what it really means? And do you understand how it applies in the context of your job?

To “discriminate” against someone means to treat that person differently, or less favorably, for some reason. Discrimination can occur while you are at school, at work, or in a public place, such as a mall or subway station. You can be discriminated against by school friends, teachers, coaches, co-workers, managers, or business owners.

What Is Sexual Harassment?

The EEOC has defined sexual harassment in its guidelines as:

Unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature when:

  • Submission to such conduct is either explicitly or implicitly a term or condition of an individual’s employment, or
  • Submission to or rejection of such conduct by an individual is used as a basis for employment decisions affecting such individual, or
  • Such conduct has the purpose of unreasonably interfering with an individual’s work performance or creating an intimidating, hostile, or offensive working environment.

    Lisa and her team were responsive, professional, compassionate and lead with integrity. They were also confident, dependable and provided my family and I with the piece of mind during our case which was a scary and trying time for us. They gave us the courage to do what was right and provided the support and validation of good ethics. We are very grateful for all the hard work on our case and wish Lisa and her team much success. If you need an employment firm, this is the one to hire!

    Lisa was able to help me negotiate a severance agreement after being laid off 7 months pregnant. I would not have gotten the amount I was awarded if not for her help. She was great and always available for any questions I had. Would highly recommend retaining her services!

    Thank you for the expert consultation, Ms. Bertini. Although the news wasn't what we had hoped for, we respect and appreciate your expert judgement. But most importantly, we felt heard... and believed. That alone was worth the cost of a consult. I'd give six stars if that was an option.

    Mrs. Bertini was very knowledgable and sensitive to my needs. She is pleasant and I am very glad I sought her council.

    What makes Ms. Bertini stand out to me, as an attorney, is that not only does she have a clear understanding of the complex subject of employment law, but she is also honest and direct! She listened to my story, with the empathetic ear of a social worker/therapist, and then gave me clear-cut and sound advice, that only someone with her background and understanding of employment law could do! I would highly recommend her.
