Common Legal Issues in the Workplace
Discrimination is often subtle. You may hear terms such as “downsizing” or “a poor economy” for justifying your termination or loss of promotion while other, less-qualified candidates are kept or advanced.
Employment law is a complex and ever-changing area of law. State and federal law protects employees from workplace harassment, retaliation and discrimination based on the following classifications:
- National origin
- Sexual orientation
- Marital status
- Pregnancy & Nursing Mothers
- Family and medical leave
Another common illegal workplace practice is sexual harassment. Sexual harassment is a form of employment discrimination based on verbal or physical abuse of a sexual nature. Victims of sexual harassment can suffer from psychological damage and a failure to adequately perform job duties. Ultimately, many sexual harassment victims feel the need to quit their job to avoid further harassment.
