EMPLOYEE ADVOCACY

Has your employer, supervisor or co-worker pushed the boundaries of professional decency or outright violated your rights in the workplace?

As an employee you have the right to a safe workplace free from discrimination, harassment, retaliation, wrongful termination, destruction of property and violence.

Employees who are affected by workplace bullies and miscreants are impacted in many ways such as: fear of retaliation for making a report, a loss of income in wages, deterioration of physical and mental health and a feeling of helplessness and powerlessness because employees need their jobs to support their families and don't want to be viewed as "troublemakers".

Here is a short list (not exhaustive) of intolerable behavior in the workplace:

  • Harassment

    • Sexual Harassment​

    • Name calling based on race, gender, national origin, disability or religion

    • Offensive and pejorative photos ​​or language

    • Inappropriate and unwelcome touching, grabbing, kissing.

  • Discrimination​

  • Retaliation for making a complaint about protected rights.

In the workplace,all people deserve to be treated with respect when providing a service to their employer, and work in an environment free of unacceptable behavior. 

It is not about being "politically correct", it is about respect and having the right to work in workplace free of hostilities.

If your employer did not stand behind its policies and violated your rights in the workplace or allowed another person in the workplace, or vendor to do so, contact Attorney Ta'Mara Foster to advocate for your rights.

SEVERANCE AGREEMENTS AND NON DISCLOSURE AGREEMENTS

If you have been terminated from your job and offered a severance agreement or non disclosure agreement, do not sign it without consulting an attorney for representation and to advise you of your rights.

 

Do not be bullied or cajoled into signing a waiver of claim or a release of the right to sue for claims arising out of the employee relationship especially when an underlying matter of employment rights has taken place. 

Contact Attorney Ta'Mara Foster before signing the paper!
