Harassment in the Workplace in St. Louis Park
Sexual harassment is an issue many employees will encounter at some point in their careers, whether they are the victim or a bystander. Sexual harassment can consist of inappropriate comments, gestures, requests to perform sexual acts, or other verbal or physical harassment of a sexual nature. None of this behavior is acceptable and all would be considered sexual harassment in St. Louis Park workplaces.
If you’re the victim of sexual harassment and none of your coworkers or superiors have spoken up, you likely feel vulnerable and alienated in the workplace. Your superiors are required to take steps to remedy the harassment, so if your concerns have gone ignored, you may have a legal case. Our sexual harassment lawyers in St. Louis Park will help you determine whether the legal definition of sexual harassment has occurred and how to proceed from a legal perspective.
St. Louis Park Wrongful Termination Lawyers
Retaliation often occurs after an employee files a worker’s compensation claim, reports illegal conduct, or supports a coworker’s complaint of discrimination or harassment without the support of their managers or the business owners. This discrimination may come in the form of poor performance reviews, suspensions, or termination.
If you’re an employee who was wrongfully terminated or retaliated against, our St. Louis Park employment lawyers are at your service. The key to a successful retaliation claim is proving the connection between adverse employer action and conduct by an employee. We collect this evidence in preparation for litigation, but in many instances this information ends up being leveraged to negotiate a severance package that reflects fair compensation for the employee. Our Edina workplace retaliation lawyers take on cases we’re confident we’ll win. We’re prepared to advocate for you whether your case ends in negotiation or litigation.
St. Louis Park Workplace Discrimination
Workplace discrimination can occur at any time and covers a number of protected classes. A potential or current employer may not discriminate against you based on age, gender, sexual orientation, or if you’ve taken pregnancy or disability leave. Discrimination often consists of demotions or pay cuts, failure to make reasonable accommodations, or choosing not to hire a potential employee based on their protected status.
Our law firm has an established record of success in workplace discrimination claims against employers of all sizes, including employers in St. Louis Park. We don’t take on discrimination cases unless we’re confident your situation meets the legal standard of discrimination, so you can be sure we’re prepared to put our all into advocating for you.
