Employee Tips


Employment discrimination cases are, by design, complex because of the emotional and physical investment that workers have made on behalf of the employer all in the name of earning an honest living. Based thereon, below are a few tips that may assist the worker in his or her claims:

1. Document everything:
It is a good idea for the worker to document (in a diary or log, on a calendar, etc.) all offensive and discriminatory events including but not limited to who did or said something, what was done or said, who witnessed the event(s), when did such occur, etc.

2. Complain appropriately: In many cases, the worker must comply with the employer's handbook or policy on reporting discriminatory conduct. It is a good idea for the worker to get a copy of the employer's policy on discrimination and make every effort to complain (in writing, preferably) accordingly.

3. Seek legal counsel immediately: There are many deadlines associated with the various employment discrimination laws. The worker should seek legal advice as soon as possible to prevent losing out on his or her legal rights.

4. Keep documentation: It is a good idea for the worker to keep in a safe place any lawfully obtained documentation that may support his or her claims including but not limited to emails, love notes, hate-filled notes, grievances, evaluations, photographs, audio tapes, and other lawful recordings, etc.
