The workplace is where a person spends a good majority of their time. Work should not be a place where a person feels uncomfortable or alienated. It can be difficult to know what rights you have as an employee. Employees have significant protections from workplace harassment or workplace discrimination. Often, employers use their power to stifle employee’s rights. An employer cannot discriminate against an employee on their state or federally protected traits. Employment discrimination and harassment is common and remediable. Our attorneys ensure that employee rights are protected and preserved. Once you make a claim, our Orlando Employment Law, Maryland and Washington DC employment law attorneys will fight to safeguard your right to make a living.
Employers cannot discriminate against a person on the basis of their federal or state protected traits. Federal and state protections may vary but some common protected traits include race, age, gender and national origin. Once an employer makes a decision that adversely affects an employee on the basis of a protected trait, an employee has many options to remedy the situation. Remedies can range from monetary compensation, retaining your job or receiving a promotion. Purely Legal can assist in resolving a claim of employment discrimination to help get employees what they deserve. If you live in Florida, Maryland or Washington D.C. and you feel you have been discriminated against, call Purely Legal today to schedule your consultation.
Quid Pro Quo Sexual Harassment
Quid Pro Quo (“something for something”) Sexual Harassment happens when an employer makes sexual advances or expects sexual favors in exchange for a workplace right or benefit. An employer cannot give or take away a right from a worker in exchange for sexual favors. Threats of reprisal or retaliation cannot be made on the denial of sex.

Employers do not have the right to subject employees to such conduct which can have a traumatic mental and emotional effect. The attorneys at Purely Legal understand this and strive to protect you from a toxic work environment. If you need a Florida, Maryland hostile work environment lawyer or a Washington D.C. hostile work environment lawyer, please call Purely Legal today to schedule your consultation.
