THE MOST IMPORTANT THING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT EMPLOYMENT RIGHTS
Are you facing workplace discrimination based on disability, your race or sexual orientation? Are you being subjected to unwanted sexual comments or advances? The workplace should be free of harassing or discriminatory behavior, but not all employers take steps to ensure their employees are subjected to a hostile work environment. A hostile work environment is toxic for everyone and employers have a duty to protect their employees.
What is workplace discrimination? Workplace discrimination is the act of discrimination against harassing or retaliating against an employee of co-worker based on their age, physical disability, race, or sex. Actions such as racially-biased hiring standards
Under Massachusetts law, an employer must take the appropriate steps and address any complaints of discrimination or harassment they receive. Should an employer ignore a worker’s complaints or fail to take action, the person being subjected to abuse may have legal recourse. Not all cases of discrimination or sexual harassment rise to the level where legal action is warranted, so it is imperative that you speak with an employment lawyer in Massachusetts to determine what steps are appropriate in your case.
