PROTECTING EMPLOYEES RIGHTS
Everyone Deserves to Work in a Safe and Comfortable Environment.
The Rizzuto Law Firm firmly believes that everyone has the right to work in a safe environment, free from harassment or discrimination. A hostile work environment is not only demeaning, it can affect every aspect of your life.
Everyone Should be Entitled to the Same Opportunities for Advancement.
Every employee should be entitled to the same pay increases as any of their coworkers. Being harassed, fired or passed over for a job because of someone else’s personal bias or prejudice is wrong and must not be tolerated.
Harassment Comes in Many Forms.
Many people fear reporting harassment out of fear of reprisal or retaliation from their employers or even other coworkers. This fear can prevent victims of harassment from seeking the help they need. Any form of speech or action that is pervasive enough to create a hostile or abusive work environment can be considered harassment.
None of these are acceptable behaviors on the part of your employer, supervisor or co-workers. Working in a hostile environment is not conducive to good performance, confidence or overall happiness. It is in your employer’s best interests to prevent this kind of behavior as much as it is in yours.
The Rizzuto Law Firm handles all types of discrimination claims, including race, age, gender, national origin, and sexual orientation. We also handle retaliation and sexual harassment cases, as well as most other employment claims, such as defamation, fraud, wrongful termination, and breach of contract.
