3 Situations That Call For Seeking Advice From An Employment Attorney

Nov 12, 19 3 Situations That Call For Seeking Advice From An Employment Attorney

Many people are unaware of the rights they have in regard to employment issues. In many cases, they may take the word of others and assume there is little to nothing they can do about things that occur in the workplace. Depending on the nature of the event or series of events, there may be legal recourse. The only way to know for sure is to speak with an employment attorney. Here are three types of situations that should motivate employees to seek legal counsel.

Sexual Harassment
No one should have to deal with sexual advances, innuendos, or similar displays of an intimate nature while in the workplace. It doesn’t matter if the unwelcome activity is associated with a co-worker, a supervisor, or a company owner. There are laws that protect employees of all genders from having to deal with sexual harassment in the workplace. If you believe that inappropriate behavior is taking place, you should talk with an attorney.

Discrimination in the Workplace
Discrimination can take on many forms. It can have to do with ethnicity, gender, orientation, age, and a number of other factors. If you believe that you are passed over for promotions or are in any way marginalized in terms of work opportunities, it pays to talk with an employment attorney and discuss what’s happening. Depending on the particulars, you may have the grounds for a discrimination suit.

Wrongful Termination
When you believe the reason for your termination is something other than what was stated or if that reason is not supported with evidence, you don’t have to accept the decision. It’s possible that an employment attorney may look over the available information and file a wrongful termination suit on your behalf. If successful, the suit may not get you job back, but it could provide resources that keep you on sound financial footing as you look for another position.

These are only a few examples of situations that call for seeking legal advice. If you think that something is happening at your place of employment that’s not in line with current laws, find an attorney who can help you evaluate the activity. Doing so will help you have a better idea of where you legally stand. Call Gillick, Wicht, Gillick & Graf today and schedule your consultation on any employment-related matter.
