Understanding Hostile Work Environments

Many employees believe that one incident, such a discriminative incident, is enough grounds to pursue a claim. Although single incidents can give employees grounds for legal action, it is often difficult to prove an employer's intentions. On the contrary, when the victimized employee has been subject to multiple incidents in the workplace - on different occasions - it is usually easier to reach a successful claim outcome. When suffering mistreatment in the workplace, employees have to ask themselves the following question: is my workplace a hostile work environment? When an employee suffers constant and severe mistreatment that ultimately affects the employee's will to go to work, there is a hostile work environment. If your employer created a hostile work environment by constantly subjecting you to unfair treatment, you will likely have grounds to pursue a claim against your employer.

Your Right to Pursue an Employment Claim

Understanding Hostile Work Environments - Labor Law lawyers Were you subject to unfair treatment in the workplace? Have you constantly witnessed someone being mistreated in the workplace? Whether you have been directly or indirectly affected by unfair treatment in the workplace, you should be aware of your right to pursue a claim. Unfortunately, not enough witnesses speak up. If witnessing mistreatment in the workplace affected you in any way, you also have the right to pursue a claim against your employer.

Employment and Personal Injury Accidents

Although most employment claims are based on poor treatment in the workplace, employees can also pursue claims against their employers if they suffer personal injury accidents in the workplace. There are a variety of accidents that are common to the workplace, including the following: slip and falls; trip and falls; physical attacks. Many workplace accidents occur because of defective equipment, faulty wiring, and other preventable reasons. To be able to file a claim for workplace accidents, employees must be able to prove that their employers negligently or intentionally caused their accidents and their injuries. All employers have the duty to keep their employees safe from injuries in the workplace. If they breach their duty of care and cause an accident that leaves you injured, they could be liable for the harm you suffered - meaning that you could pursue a claim against your employer.

Your Right to Recover Compensation

Regardless of the specific type of employment claim that you are pursuing, you will likely be eligible to recover compensation. As an employee who has been victimized in the workplace, you might have many questions regarding the monetary compensation that you could recover. How much compensation could I receive? What type of compensation could I receive? Could I recover any type of compensation? Consider the following types of compensation described below:

  • Medical expenses (Compensation reserved for employment claims based on workplace injuries. Includes compensation for past and future medical bills.)
  • Lost income (Compensation for the income that was lost - and will continue to be lost - due to the unfair treatment or workplace injury.)
  • Pain and suffering (Compensation for the mental and emotional distress associated with the unfair workplace treatment or the injury suffered.)
  • Punitive damages (Compensation awarded as punishment to the defendant and as an attempt to prevent similar incidents from reoccurring.)

Without a doubt, it could be difficult to understand the type and amount of compensation that you might be eligible to recover. Because of that, we recommend that you discuss your claim with the experts at Eldessouky Law Upland as soon as possible. Our experienced employment attorneys will fight for your right to recover the compensation that you deserve - the maximum amount of compensation available.
