Sacramento Area Lawyer Fighting Hostile Work Environments

A worker took a stance. She reported her boss's sexual harassment of a young administrative assistant. After her boss was reprimanded, the worker's job conditions became nearly unbearable. The boss's behavior towards her became rude and nasty at every moment of the day, as if he was trying to make her quit. She started working fewer hours, but she refused to quit. Instead, she got a lawyer.

A hostile work environment is something that no employee should tolerate. For whatever reason it occurs - in retaliation for reporting illegal actions, because of a boss's instability or because a coworker wants your job - a lawyer's help can stop it.
