Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs): Employment Discrimination

How can we help you?

Navigating legal matters can be complicated, and at Kunkle and Sennett, we expect that you will have questions. We have gathered some of our most frequently asked questions here. If you have other questions, please check the services tab for a list of the types of legal cases we take on. We also welcome you to contact us directly.

Employment Discrimination

First, you must look at your employer’s policy manual or employee handbook to determine if it has a policy prohibiting harassment and, if so, whether that policy includes a procedure for lodging complaints about harassment. If the policy includes such a procedure, you must comply with it, unless the procedure designates only the person harassing you as the person to bring your complaint to.

Importance of Documentation

Apart from this, you should document all incidents of harassment and communicate your request that the harassment end to both your boss and your human resources representative, both verbally and in a confirming writing (e-mail is fine).

By doing this, you provide yourself with legal protection against retaliation by your employer for raising the complaint of harassment and preserve your right to make a claim in court if the harassment continues.
