Harassment & Retaliation At Work

Have you been harassed at work? Did you stand up for yourself and then you were fired, demoted, transferred or denied an employment benefit? Have you been fired or laid off after being harassed or discriminated against and thought that something was fishy or not quite right? Did you blow the whistle and got fired as a result? If so, you are not alone and you should call Joe Herbert Law.

It’s tough out there, and your job is critical. Getting fired is an entirely different situation than it was even five years ago. Likewise, being harassed by the boss for an illegal reason is gut-wrenching and makes you not want to go to work. It’s like facing a bully at school. Your stomach aches, your palms sweat, you shake, you get headaches and all sorts of other aches and pains as you drive to work.  An unrelenting and discriminating boss can turn your world upside down, affect your health, and change how you interact with your family and loved ones. If this is happening to you, call me immediately.

Face it – we are our jobs and a good portion of our lives is spent at work. Other than a person’s relationship with a spouse and children, the employer-employee relationship is one of the most significant in life. Think about it. What’s one of the first questions people ask at a party? “What do you do?” Sure, they also ask about marriage and kids, sports and maybe where you live, but as sure as night follows day, the job question always comes up. Our jobs are important to us, to our families, and to having a functioning society. This is precisely why our elected officials have created laws to protect you, me, and us.

Free Confidential Employment Law Consultations. If you feel that you have been wrongfully terminated, harassed, discriminated against, or otherwise been subjected to any other illegal acts in the workplace, you should contact Joe Herbert Law today for a free confidential consultation toll-free at (855) 805ATTY or (805) 482-5340. I can explain your rights in a strictly confidential setting, and with the knowledge that comes from years of experience with the ever-changing labor codes in California.

A job today is a precious and hard-earned asset that needs to be nourished, managed and protected. Having an employer that doesn’t like your gender, color, religion, sexual orientation or disability, maybe doesn’t like that you are pregnant or that you became ill and needed time off, etc., and fires you based on this dislike is crushing and turns your world upside down. When this happens, you must not be afraid to fight back, and fight back hard. This is where I can help. I am the soldier that will fight for you against the company and its army of lawyers.

Being without a job in today’s economy is especially stressful, because good jobs are hard to get. This is especially true if you were wrongfully terminated. If you believe you were fired without cause or are being retaliated against, please contact me at Joe Herbert Law. I am results-driven and have helped people like you all over Los Angeles and Ventura counties.

Scales of Justice!I handle wrongful termination claims and win them in courtrooms and negotiation tables all over Los Angeles and Ventura counties. I am up-to-date with the latest labor codes in California and I have a thorough understanding of how the local courts work. I make sure that your rights are being protected so you can take care of yourself and your family.

A fair, equitable and legally compliant workplace is a basic right protected by state and federal laws. I have been getting satisfaction and justice for my clients for wrongful termination, harassment, discrimination, and wage and hour violations in Ventura and Los Angeles Counties for over a decade.

Under state and federal laws, harassment in the work place is illegal. It is also illegal for an employer to retaliate against an employee for reporting harassment. Forms of illegal harassment include the following:

  • Sexual harassment
  • Sexual orientation harassment
  • Racial or ethnic harassment
  • Religious affiliation harassment
  • National origin harassment
  • Disability harassment
  • Pregnancy harassment
  • Age harassment

If retaliation for reporting harassment occurs and an employee is fired or otherwise punished, he or she may be eligible for compensation for lost wages, lost benefits, emotional suffering and punitive damages. In California it is illegal for an employer to retaliate against an employee for reporting unsafe work conditions and illegal activity such as harassment.

I can explain your legal rights and how the law protects your employment confidentially, and with knowledge that comes from years of experience with harassment claims. For a free harassment case evaluation, contact Joe Herbert Law (link).

I take great pride in standing up to exploitive employers and making them pay what they owe to their employees and contractors. I fight for the rights of workers at all levels, from manual laborers to senior executives, to work in a safe work environment free from harassment, discrimination and retaliatory actions.
