Stopping sexual harassment with a culture of inclusion

While women have made tremendous strides in every professional field, there is still much to be done to bring workplace sexual harassment and discrimination to an end.

Protections against the firing of whistleblowers

Getting fired from a job is almost always a traumatic experience for the person who has just been let go unexpectedly. Getting fired for an illegitimate reason can be even worse.

Knowing the employment law options can help such workers assert their rights in the face of an employer's illegal action.

Some may even remain in jobs where they are treated poorly, due to fear of losing their paycheck or dealing with the repercussions of getting fired. In these types of situations, an employment law attorney may be able to help.
