A Law Firm Protecting The Workplace Rights Of Employees
To many people, work is more than just a paycheck. Having a meaningful job can be a source of pride and identity. For these reasons and many more, a problem in the workplace that threatens your employment or makes the workplace hostile can derail both your professional and personal lives.
Thankfully, you likely have more options for addressing the problem than you realize. You can fight back against workplace discrimination and harassment with the help of an experienced attorney. In Riverton and throughout Wyoming, the firm to call is Joel M. Vincent Law Office. We have been helping clients seek justice for more than 40 years. We can help you, too.
Legal Ignorance And Apathy Are Not Excuses
Business owners and managers who hire and oversee employees are bound by state and federal employment laws. Unfortunately, there are plenty of employers who either haven’t taken the time to learn about these laws or simply don’t care to enforce them (usually because they suspect they won’t face any consequences for failing to do so).
If you’ve been a victim of discrimination or harassment at work, you do have the power to fight back and to hold your employer accountable. Our firm can help you enforce your rights to a workplace free from:
- Discrimination based on race, ethnicity or national origin
- Discrimination based on gender and gender-related conditions (such as pregnancy or breastfeeding)
- Sexual orientation or gender identity discrimination
- Age discrimination for workers over age 40 (per the Age Discrimination in Employment Act)
- Disability discrimination or refusal to make reasonable accommodations (under the Americans with Disabilities Act)
- Sexual harassment
- Harassment based on other protected characteristics (like those listed above)
It is not your job to educate your employer about your legal protections or to negotiate for fair treatment under the law. If you raise a formal complaint and your employer fails to address it and/or retaliates against you for reporting it, our firm can help you take all appropriate steps to correct the behavior and seek compensation on your behalf.
