What kind of Employment Law cases will we be handling?
We here at Litster Frost want to be your one-stop-shop for anything Employment Law related. We have hired Nathan Starnes. Nathan has a multitude of experience in handling Employment Law disputes and has handled hundreds of cases in his career. We want to be able to represent you in any type of case from discrimination to sexual harassment. Listed below are some descriptions of the type of cases we would love to talk to you about.
Discrimination – If you have been discriminated against because of your age (over 40), disability, gender, race, religion, or because of a pregnancy, you may have a case. You have the right to not be treated differently, or not given the same opportunities, as your colleagues. Discrimination can also occur in the form of harassment in the workplace by a supervisor or co-worker. Remember, if it is happening to you, it is more than likely happening to others. Don’t guess, be sure, and give us a call. One example of discrimination that women should be particularly aware of is Pregnancy Discrimination. It is illegal for an employer to fire you, or treat you differently because of a pregnancy or a condition relating to your pregnancy.
Sexual Harassment in the work place is never acceptable, and the harassment can come in many forms, such as: unwanted sexual advances, sexual jokes/banter, requests for sexual favors, or other unwanted physical or verbal harassment of a sexual nature from anyone, including supervisors. The U.S. Equal Opportunity Employment Commission (EEOC) defines sexual harassment as “unwelcome sexual advances or conduct of a sexual nature which reasonably interferes with the performance of a person’s job or creates an intimidating, hostile, or offensive work environment.
Idaho is an “at-will” employment state, which means an employee can be fired at any time for any reason, or in some cases for no reason at all. There are exceptions, however. You may not be fired because of any form of discrimination including age (over 40), color, race, sex, pregnancy, disability, or citizenship status. You also may not be fired for making a complaint or “whistleblowing” against anyone in your work place. Furthermore, it is illegal to fire anyone who takes off work for certain civic or personal obligations such as: military leave, jury duty, or Family and Medical Leave (FMLA). If you think you have been the victim to any of these wrongful terminations give us a call and discuss the facts of your case with us. We are here to help.
