Although it is never legal to harass an employee in the workplace or deny an employee benefits, or to discriminate against hiring a potential employee based on a variety of protected factors, these situations frequently go unreported right here in Chesapeake, Virginia. Out of fear of losing their jobs, many employees fail to speak up against misconduct in the workplace. Legal issues are prevalent in all areas of employment law, which is why employment lawyers at Bertini Law fight hard to ensure your rights are protected.
If you believe you have been subjected to abusive and discriminatory conduct in the workplace, you may find solace in pursuing litigation against your employer.
