Employment Rights Violations 2019

It is critical for employers to ensure that they are providing a safe work environment for each and every one of their employees. However, there are many situations in which this is not the case, and employees may fall victim to a violation of their employee rights.

Sexual Harassment

Sexual harassment occurs when an employer either demands sexual favors in exchange for a promotion, raise, or other employment perks, or when a work environment is hostile due to its sexual nature. Since this is one of the most common workplace issues, it is critical for every employer to have a sexual harassment policy in place.


Discrimination due to a person’s age, sex, race, national origin, religion, disability, or sexual orientation during the hiring process, during a promotion, or during termination are all prohibited under federal law. Discrimination claims are the most common employee lawsuits, so it is important to ensure that your employer is preventing any type of discrimination from occurring in your workplace.

Workplace violations are not limited to just sexual harassment and discrimination, so be sure to make yourself aware of your rights. If you have any questions or believe that your employment rights have been violated, be sure to contact the employment attorneys at Maduff & Maduff today.
