At the Tuttle and McCloskey law firm, we care about the workers who help make Fresno a great place to live. We would like to launch our new blog by focusing on one of the most tragic areas of employment: workplace discrimination. Although we live in a contemporary and enlightened world, discrimination in the workplace still exists.
Our attorneys would like to see this change, which is why we devote a large portion of our practice to helping victims of workplace discrimination find justice. When you are committed to providing honest work in exchange for your earnings, you deserve to be treated fairly in the workplace. Yet, repeatedly, we see California workers subjected to discrimination and even harassment.
We want all of you to understand that you do not have to live like this. With the right legal approach, it is possible to find a remedy for your employment problems. This is so for women who must constantly face sexual harassment in the workplace and it is so for those who experience discrimination or unequal treatment.
There are many types of discrimination against workers in our state. You deserve to know if your coworkers or employers have engaged in this unlawful behavior so that you can find a remedy. Unfortunately, many people have an inadequate understanding of what constitutes discrimination and harassment.
As a general rule of thumb, we like to advise our neighbors to seek legal counsel if any behaviors at work make you feel uncomfortable. This empowers you to find out if your employer is fostering a hostile work environment or outright breaking employment laws. We also urge you to explore our website for more answers about harassment and discrimination in the workplace.
