Reporting discrimination or being punished for whistleblowing

On Behalf of | Aug 11, 2015 | Workplace Discrimination |

Workplace discrimination is an issue that has plagued many people in the past. It continues on even into the modern workplace. If you have faced discrimination in the workplace before, we at Neaton & Puklich, P.L.L.P., wish to do our best in order to help you.

There are several things that continue to be an issue of discrimination despite the fact that it is illegal to discriminate against people in a professional environment. Some of these long-standing points of discrimination include race and gender, as well as nationality. Other issues that have been gaining more attention recently include discrimination against sexuality or whether or not you may be pregnant.

It is possible to fight against any discrimination along these lines due to the fact that they are illegal. However, you may be concerned about approaching an attorney because you fear repercussions at the workplace. This is a reasonable and normal fear that many people experience before blowing the whistle on inappropriate behavior in their workspace. However, it is your right to protect yourself at work. It is also your right to avoid any punishments that your employers may attempt to dole out if you do blow the whistle on their bad behavior. You are also allowed to get legal help if you face further discrimination after you have reported initial issues in the workplace. It is, in fact, encouraged.
