As an employee, you are entitled to numerous protections under state and federal law against discrimination, sexual harassment, and unfair working conditions. When your employer violates those rights – either through a supervisor’s actions or through a coworker’s actions of which the employer is aware – you as the employee have the right to bring a lawsuit to enforce your employment rights and hold the employer accountable through an injunction and/or monetary recovery. The attorneys at Sauder Schelkopf hold employers accountable.
