Stand Up For Your Rights In A Hostile Work Environment

Everyone deserves to feel safe and comfortable in their workplace. Unfortunately, there are several ways a peaceful work environment can be compromised. A co-worker may invade our personal space, or a manager may make unwanted sexual advances. Whatever the case, know that there are state and federal laws that protect you as an employee.

At Toni Jaramilla, A Professional Law Corporation, our team of seasoned lawyers has a combined 50 years of experience representing clients in need of legal protection on the job and elsewhere. We stand up for workers’ rights in and out of California courtrooms. If your work environment is hostile, we have the experience and knowledge necessary to make your voice heard.

What A Hostile Work Environment Is And How We Can Help

A hostile work environment is one in which a co-worker or an employer behaves or communicates in a way that makes you feel uncomfortable or threatened. Such an atmosphere at work can make your job duties difficult or impossible to perform. How you respond to this environment may make a difference in your professional and personal life. Standing up for your rights now can help keep your career on track.

You should not be discriminated against, threatened or attacked by any other type of hostility. Your best chance at seeing a positive change in your workplace, or at making a successful claim against your employer or co-worker, is with the help of an experienced lawyer. We are available to work closely with you in pursuit of the positive outcome that you deserve, such as:

  • Cessation of the hostile actions
  • Reassignment (for you or the harasser) to another area of the company
  • Reversal of wrong actions or omissions such as a missed promotion or lost wages due to time off you felt compelled to take for your health
  • Punitive compensation in dollars
  • Reimbursement of your legal fees
