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.

Her and her team,put an exit strategy together for me .I was correct my employer at first said no deal ,we wish you the best.Lisa then began negotiating with my employer's attorney.She kept me posted daily .She was able to get me a very nice settlement and resolve all of this within 15 days. If you want someone to FIGHT for you ,her and her team are the ones to hire.
