Knowing When Your Work Environment Is Hostile
Any form of harassment or discriminatory behavior could lead to a hostile workplace. If the issues are so severe and pervasive that you cannot function normally in the office, you may have a case against your employer.
Everybody has the right to work in a safe and comfortable environment. If that right is being impeded by your employer, you may have a case regarding a hostile work environment. These are serious cases, but the abuse you may be suffering can seem minor. The abuse may be verbal or have become so routine that it feels commonplace.
The attorneys at the Law Offices of Feeley & LaRocca are experienced in hostile work environment cases for all kinds of employees. The firm is located in South Orange and serves clients throughout New Jersey.
How Is Retaliation Different Than A Hostile Work Environment?
As an employee, you have the right to bring a complaint against your employer without facing retribution. This gets at the core of retaliation. If you accuse your employer of anything from a minor infraction to repeated and aggressive abuse or anything in between, you have the right to seek legal recourse against your employer. In return, your employer cannot take action against you.
Often it is in your best interest to move on from an employer following a dispute, but this entails recovering losses, often in the form lost wages and other damages. The lawyers at the Law Offices of Feeley & LaRocca are deeply experienced and knowledgeable about retaliation cases and work with a variety of clients.
