Is Harassment Preventing You From Doing Your Job?
Federal law protects workers from discrimination based on race, age, sex, religion, national origin and disability. New Jersey’s Law Against Discrimination (LAD) includes protection for transgender employees and employees in same-sex relationships.
A hostile work environment can occur when an employee is harassed because of his or her race, age, sex, religion, national origin or disability. The most common type of hostile work environment, however, is based on sexual harassment.
Sexual harassment and hostile work environment are types of sex discrimination and can include harassment over gender, sexual orientation and whether a person is biologically a man or a woman. Workplace sexual harassment can be committed by managers, co-workers or third parties of the opposite or same sex. Sexual harassment can include:
- Sexually offensive or demeaning remarks, jokes, emails, websites or photographs
- Sexual advances, threats or inappropriate touching
We can protect your right to work free from harassment and discrimination when your employer fails to do so. We will work with you to gather the necessary evidence to support your claim. If your case goes to trial, we will fight hard for you.
If your safety is threatened by bullying in the workplace, it may be a police matter. In some cases, we can take legal steps to hold an employer liable. Depending on the case, bullying may or may not be part of behavior that legally constitutes harassment.
