Protection Against Workplace Discrimination

One of the most common employment law issues that the average American worker will encounter is unfair and unlawful workplace discrimination. The United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has outlined and defined a number of federally protected classes that cannot be weighed negatively in workplace decisions.

You cannot be discriminated against due to one of the protected classes in matters regarding:

  • Interviews and applications
  • Hiring and firing decisions
  • Training opportunities
  • Promotion eligibility
  • Pay increases or decreases

The fact that the EEOC must exist is a testament to its own importance. If there were not federal regulations in place to prevent workplace discrimination, it would surely be far more widespread than it is today. To this end, it is crucial that you always report any discriminatory behavior at your job. But it is also critical that you report the discrimination in the correct manner. Many employees make fatal errors in how they report unlawful discrimination. On the other hand, if done correctly, you can protect yourself and countless others that are struggling from the same illegitimate practices, or who would have struggled if nothing was done in reaction to your own mistreatment. Mr. Wulbern takes each discrimination case with utmost seriousness, acknowledging that you speak for yourself and those who did not have the courage to speak up.

Sexual Harassment Law FAQ

Another prevalent problem in the workplace all across the country is sexual harassment. The Law Office of Shands M. Wulbern, P.A. has a strong focus on sexual harassment cases with the ultimate goal of stopping such biased and harmful treatment before it has a chance to begin. To empower clients and inform them of their rights, the firm has provided a comprehensive list of frequently asked questions about sexual harassment laws and cases.

  1. What is sexual harassment?
    Unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature.
  2. Who can commit sexual harassment?
    There is no one who is exempt from sexual harassment laws. Coworkers, supervisors, and even customers must all respect and adhere to sexual harassment regulations, and employers can be liable for the conduct of these individuals.
  3. Does same-sex sexual harassment exist?
    Yes. Sexual harassment occurs regardless of the sexes of the people involved. A female can be held accountable for harassing a male or a female, and the same can be said of male harassers.
  4. Is it acceptable to make mild sexual comments or questions?
    It will depend upon the circumstances. A stray remark by itself will not likely suffice for an actionable claim. However, each case is different and it may depend upon all the facts and circumstances. Offensive sexual comments that either by themselves, or with other conduct, unreasonably interfere with an employee’s ability to work can provide enough evidence for unlawful sexual harassment. Also, a sexual comment or question that is really a sexual advance, and its rejection results in an adverse employment action such as termination, demotion, reduction in pay, or similar acts, may also violate sexual harassment laws. For example, a seemingly innocent request for a date by a supervisor which is rejected by the subordinate employee, and followed by a suspicious termination from employment, would likely constitute unlawful sexual harassment.
