Successful Workplace Discrimination And Harassment Attorney Representing Tampa Clients
Simply put, it is illegal for your employer to treat you differently than your other co-workers based on your status as a member of a protected class. If your employer discriminates you based on any of the following considerations, contact attorney Craig Berman for help rectifying the situation.
Employees of all ages are part of the workforce, and it is illegal for your employer or co-workers to treat you differently because of your age. If you are 40 or older and are experiencing negative treatment in the workplace, you may have a case for seeking legal recourse for age discrimination.
Are you suffering unfair treatment because of your gender? If so, you have protections under Florida and federal employment laws and should seek the counsel of an experienced employment and labor law attorney like Mr. Berman. He can help you report the inappropriate behavior to the right authority or agency so the treatment stops and you are compensated for this injustice.
Your employer is not allowed to discriminate against you because you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant. Under federal and state laws, your employer may not terminate you, decline to hire you, change your duties or compensation, or otherwise treat you differently because of a pregnancy. If you have suffered unfair treatment because of a matter pertaining to pregnancy, contact attorney Berman today.
Employees with disabilities are protected from unfair treatment under many state and federal laws, but not all employers eagerly abide by these statutes. If you are being harassed, paid less for equal work, given demeaning tasks or any other form of inappropriate behavior, attorney Berman can help make the situation right and fight for compensation for your troubles.
Race And National Origin Discrimination
Your skin color and/or where you or your parents were born should have no bearing on the amount of respect and responsibility you receive at work. This has become even more important during the currently divisive political climate. If you have been passed over for a job or promotion, made to suffer unfair and degrading behavior, or terminated because of your race or national origin, lawyer Berman can help you amend this unjust situation.
People living and working in the United States are entitled to practice any religion they like without fear of discrimination in their personal or professional lives. If you have been subjected to religious abuse or discrimination at work, you should be compensated for your trauma. Attorney Berman can help you report the violations to the proper agency and hold those responsible accountable for their actions.
You should not have to fear being sexually harassed, assaulted or objectified in the workplace. You are there to do your job and should not have to endure inappropriate comments, gestures or actions. If you have been sexually harassed at work, attorney Berman can help you make things right and move forward.
Hostile Work Environment
A hostile work environment is one in which it is difficult or impossible to complete your assigned work duties because of discrimination, intimidation, abuse, harassment or some other form of intolerable behavior. If you are suffering in a hostile work environment, chances are that you are not the only one who could benefit from filing a lawsuit to put an end to this unfair situation. Contact Craig Berman today to learn how you can get started.
Florida Civil Rights Act
The Florida Civil Rights Act (FCRA) has been in place since 1992 and seeks to further protect Florida employees from unfair and unjust working conditions. Its tenets extend to professional clubs, groups and organizations whose membership could preclude one’s employment. If you have been barred from a professional club or experienced discrimination in the workplace, we may have a case in violation of the FCRA.
Wrongful Termination And Retaliatory Discharge
Even though Florida is an at-will employment state, that does not mean that your employer is allowed to fire you based on your status as a protected class member or because you reported a violation in the workplace. If you have been terminated or laid off in retaliation or for another illegal reason, contact Mr. Berman today to go over the details of your case.
