Preventing And Resolving Disputes Over Discrimination, Harassment And Retaliation
State and federal laws protect employees and provide preventive guidelines for employers on workplace discrimination and harassment. Furthermore, these laws make it clear that workers should not experience retaliation when they report instances or patterns of discrimination or harassment to supervisors or government agencies.
Knowing about these legal protections is reassuring but enforcing them requires legal action. That’s where Zwetsch Law Group comes in for Florida clients on either side of an issue. Attorney Kevin D. Zwetsch and the team in St. Petersburg provide counseling as well as support through litigation as necessary when disputes become full-blown legal problems.
Standing Up For Justice In A Dispute
Employees often request instructions on how to report discrimination and harassment situations such as lower pay, demotions, discharge or other discriminatory practices on the basis of:
- Race, religion or national origin
- Sex, pregnancy, marital status, age (over 40) or veteran status
If Zwetsch Law Group or ZLG is your employment law firm, you will be fully supported and guided in standing up for your right to freedom from employment discrimination of these types.
As an employee, you may need to tell your supervisor and then, if you do not get relief, report the discrimination to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) or the Florida Commission on Human Relations (FCHR). Attorney Zwetsch can help ensure that you follow the correct procedures in a timely manner before attempting to file a lawsuit.
If you are an employer, you are likely on the defense in a discrimination, harassment or retaliation case. Mr. Zwetsch can help you best through preventive counseling and training. However, you may urgently need legal representation if an employee has initiated a formal complaint through a government agency or has filed a lawsuit. The legal team at ZLG is thoroughly familiar with claims involving private and public employers in all types of industries.
Put Experience On Your Side
Attorney Zwetsch and ZLG are resources awaiting your inquiry. Mr. Zwetsch has a strong reputation among employers, law firms and judges. His ample business and legal experience have prepared him to guide you to a favorable resolution of a dispute or lawsuit that you are facing over allegations of discrimination or harassment.
