When a group of people works together towards a common goal, there are bound to be moments of elation -- and moments where the members of the group are at odds. This is just inherent to any group dynamic, and being able to work through these tough times is essential to a successful project.
However, when these difficult moments exhibit rash, discriminatory behavior that steps into the boundaries of illegal treatment, then it is imperative that the employees that are being victimized by this discrimination consult with an attorney to discuss their case -- and possibly pursue an employment discrimination lawsuit.
There are many ways that an employer or a fellow employee can discriminate against you or anyone else in the workplace. They could target your age or your country of origin. They could discriminate against you based on your race, gender, sexual orientation, or religion. Or they could discriminate against you because of a disability that you live with. In each of these cases, the employer or employee is at fault and should be held accountable for their illegal, horrible behavior.
In order to do that, the victimized employee needs to take immediate and effective steps to hold them accountable. At The Law Office of Michelle Cohen Levy, P.A., we work together with our clients to hold negligent and discriminatory employers and employees responsible for their actions. If you are in need of legal help, or if you are unsure how to proceed with your case, consult with our experienced attorneys.
