Is Your Work Environment A Hostile One?

Some of the most common cases we handle are those involving hostile work environments. Your work environment may be considered a hostile one if you are consistently harassed or discriminated against at work because of your gender, your religion, your race, your age (over 40), your disability status or other protected characteristics.

You may have reported the unfair treatment to Human Resources without avail. You may have even been retaliated against for reporting the discrimination. Maybe you have been passed over for a promotion, had your hours cut, been given a bad performance review or even fired from your job. If this is the case, contact us for help today.
