Discrimination - Sexual Harassment - Retaliation
Our lawyers at Hedberg & Boulton, P.C. provide clients with tailored and zealous employment law representation. We focus our attention on representing employees and workers, not the employers with whom they may be having a dispute. Our firm handles cases for employees located in and around the Des Moines area, including Cedar Rapids, Newton and many other communities in Iowa.
Employment laws are in place in order to protect employees from a wide variety of adverse and illegal actions in the workplace. Unfortunately, these laws are frequently broken and employees find themselves in a hostile or otherwise uncomfortable work environment. If you have experienced discrimination, sexual harassment or another type of employment law matter, it is important to protect your rights by seeking the assistance of a knowledgeable employment law attorney.
Sometimes called wrongful discharge or unlawful termination, wrongful termination is a situation in which an employee has been let go or fired for a reason that the employee feels is unfair or false. Our firm can examine your situation to determine if in fact you were wrongfully terminated. If this is the case, we can then take action against your employer to seek compensation for the losses you have suffered.
Employers are prohibited from discriminating against any employee or group of employees on the basis of race, creed, ethnicity, national origin, religion, age, sex, pregnancy, sexual orientation, mental disability, physical disability or other protected classification. It is important to know that recently changes have been made to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) that expanded the definition and descriptions of many disabilities. Discriminatory actions can include wrongful termination, demotion, denial of promotion, denial of hiring and mistreatment by bosses or co-workers.
Any type of sexual harassment in the workplace is illegal and should not be tolerated. We work closely with clients to assess an ongoing case of sexual harassment and take steps toward putting an end to the harassment and finding a resolution for the situation.
