Has your workplace or previous workplace become a living hell? Many people use the term “harassment” to describe any workplace treatment that seems unfair, unduly harsh, or just plain mean. From a legal perspective, however, it must meet certain criteria. State and federal laws recognize many types of workplace discrimination, all of which can create a hostile work environment. A person may claim discrimination on the basis of race, national origin, age, sex, religion, and disability. If you feel you have a discrimination or harassment case, call the Longo Law Firm for a free consultation to find out.
Don’t wait because there are time limits on when you can file a claim. In order to make your claim in court, you need to prove the following:
- It was based on your protected characteristic (ex. Being a woman or a minority race)
- It was offensive to you
- It was unwelcome
- It was severe or pervasive enough to affect the terms and conditions of your employment.
In many harassment cases, the employer or their insurance carrier may argue that the plaintiff is actually responsible for the harassment. They may even say the entire event or events were fabricated. This is exactly what we will help you fight against. The Longo Firm has successfully handled hundreds of workplace discrimination cases through the state of Florida. We won’t let someone call you a liar; we will fight for your truth to come out.
