Springfield Hostile Work Environment Lawyer
Central Missouri Harassment Attorney
Creating a hostile work environment in order to threaten or harass an employee, or retaliate against someone for filing a grievance is a violation of the worker's federal and state civil rights. If your workplace has become a hostile environment, or you are facing harassing comments or actions from a supervisor or co-workers, you have the right to seek recourse through the courts.
The employment law attorneys at Hall Ansley Rodgers & Sweeney will fight to protect your civil rights on the job. We have a strong record of protecting the rights of workers in communities throughout central and southwestern Missouri and have won some of the state's most significant verdicts and settlements on our clients' behalf.
How Can You Prove It?
Proving a hostile work environment is often difficult, but there are almost always specific incidents that are a violation of your civil rights on the job. If you suspect you are receiving hostile treatment because of your sex, age or other discriminatory reason, start by taking careful notes and discussing the situation with your human resources department. If the behavior and practices continue, see an experienced attorney on our team right away. Remember, boorish behavior on the part of a supervisor or co-worker doesn't necessarily mean that the work environment is hostile. But workplace bullying is illegal. If you are unable to perform your job tasks and feel certain that your opportunities are being curtailed as a matter of a planned agenda, you may have a legitimate case for damages.
Our experienced employment law trial lawyers can help you recover compensation for lost advancement opportunities, wages due to missing work, punitive damages and attorneys fees to cover the cost of our services. We have extensive experience representing clients in cases involving:
- Sexual harassment
- Gender discrimination
- Age, race and religious harassment and discrimination
- Wrongful termination
