Harassment

Many people think of harassment as solely related to gender or sex, when the law prohibits workplace harassment on the basis of any protected class. This has been caused at least in part by the failure of employers to focus their training on anything but sexual harassment. In addition, often employer’s policies do not even mention racial or other forms of workplace harassment.

Under State or Federal law, if your supervisor or co-worker harasses you because of your race, color, gender, pregnancy, religion, national origin, disability, age, sexual orientation, or gender identity you may have a claim for workplace harassment.
