A 2012 report by AFLAC shows that an astonishing 35 percent of workers are extremely unhappy at the company they work for. The employees also noted that they are likely to leave their job within the next year. With the tough economy, some may be sticking it out for fear of not finding another job. But for those staying at a job that discriminates, allows sexual harassment, has wage or overtime disputes or other illegal actions, employees may be scared of filing a report for fear that they lose their job.
For those who can relate to a work situation like described above, you must first understand the importance of acting now rather than later. In a sexual harassment case, waiting too long to report the harassment may ruin your chances of recovering damages for the harassment.
Both federal and state laws will protect an employee that files a report against an employer. If you are still wary of filing a report, discussing your situation with an attorney may give you the assurance that you will be protected. The initial consultation is always free at Ray Hodge & Associates and our skilled attorneys can give you information as to whether you have a case or not.
