Last week on the blog we discussed sexual harassment and the steps employers can take to prevent it from happening. Though many employers take these precautions seriously, others fail to do so and to properly address claims of sexual harassment. If you are subjected to employee discrimination or harassment of any kind, then you might suffer harm in more ways than one. Fortunately, an experienced Louisiana attorney, like James L. Arruebarrena, may be able to help you recover from them.
First, you might suffer financially. Sometimes workplace discrimination or harassment leads to lesser hours, getting passed over for promotion, and even termination in retaliation for complaining. You might be out of a job and therefore not earning a wage, or you might be making much less than you should be.
Second, you might suffer emotional harm. Being sexually harassed or discriminated against can cause a great deal of turmoil, making you feel nervous, ashamed, and even frightened to be at work. This is wholly unacceptable, and action should be taken to ensure that it is stopped and you are made whole again.
Many times, the only way to reach this outcome is by filing a lawsuit. The legal team at our Louisisana firm knows how to aggressively pursue a claim so that the fairest outcome is reached under the given circumstances. Though no result can be guaranteed, our firm proudly and diligently ensures that our client's voices are heard and that their case receives individual consideration. We advise our clients about their legal rights and inform them of the legal choices ahead of them. It is our belief that an informed individual is a powerful one, and we want to make sure all of our clients are as powerful in the legal arena as possible.
