Protection from New Hampshire Employment Lawyers
Did you know that you are protected from any form of harassment? The state of New Hampshire has multiple laws that protect you from discrimination and hostile work environments. If you feel that you are a victim of workplace harassment, it is vitally important that you contact Shaheen & Gordon, P.A. today to speak with an attorney and receive compensation of the wrongs that were done to you.
Any unwelcomed behavior, whether it is verbal or physical, against anyone regardless of race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, or disability, is a direct violation of the Civil Rights Act. In New Hampshire, you are protected from acts of harassment under RSA 354-A:6 and 7. If you are a victim of a hostile work environment or you are being threatened or treated in a pervasive (I'm not sure what is meant here by being treated in a "pervasive manner") manner, you need to work with an attorney. Examples of workplace harassment can include:
- Unwanted sexual advances or sexual touching or comments
- Sexual jokes or innuendos
- Racial, sexual or ethnic slurs, derogatory statements or images
- Religious harassment
- Unwanted physical or verbal comments regarding someone's disabilities
