When you think your Employer is breaking the law
Written by our employment lawyers in Virginia Beach
We receive multiple phone calls and emails every day from Virginia employees who believe their employer is violating their rights. These violations include unlawful discrimination, the improper withholding of wages, or illegal retaliation.
For more than a decade, our employment lawyers in Virginia Beach have handled many lawsuits against unconcerned employers throughout Hampton Roads, including Norfolk, Chesapeake, and Portsmouth.
To be clear, an employee cannot be discriminated against on an illegal basis. This includes being discriminated or harassed against on the basis of sex, race, age, religion, and disability. There are federal and state laws that apply to businesses. Not all companies comply with them. Their failure does not mean you have to suffer.
Our employment lawyers in Virginia Beach take pride in representing workers throughout Hampton Roads who have been illegally treated by their employer. If you believe you have been illegally treated by the company you work for, you should call an experienced employment law professional to determine your next steps.
Under federal and state anti-discrimination laws, employers can be required to prevent and quickly correct discrimination within their company. Part of that prevention may include:
• Posting federal and state anti-discrimination laws in highly visible locations throughout the workplace.
• Providing anti-discrimination training to company leaders, supervisors, and employees.
• Establishing an effective, non-intimidating complaint process where employees can report suspected discrimination against themselves or a fellow employee.
