Common types of employment law claims
Some of the most common types of workplace legal issues in Idaho are:
- Sexual harassment – Lewd comments, unwanted touching, unwelcome sexual advances, explicit and sexual electronic communication, forcing oneself on another, etc., all constitute sexual harassment in one form or the other. Some are more serious than others. If you have been subjected to any such treatment then you should take the matter very seriously and stand up for your rights.
- Retaliation – One of the main reasons why so many employees tolerate things like continued harassment or abuse in the workplace is because they are afraid that if they speak up, they will be retaliated against and may even lose their job. However, to retaliate against an employee for whistle blowing is in itself grounds for an employment law claims and so employees should not be afraid to raise the alarm bells against any such wrong doing.
- Discrimination – Sometimes one employee is treated differently or unfairly from the others solely based on factors such as age, skin color, religious background, cultural background, political affiliation, gender, etc. instead of being judged on the quality of their work. Discrimination in any form is illegal and should not be condoned or tolerated at all.
- Minimum wage – There are both state laws and federal laws pertaining to what the minimum hourly wage can be. Unfortunately, some people are still paid below this rate and made to work. It is illegal to pay anyone lesser than the stipulated minimum wage.
