Should I quit my job or talk to an employment lawyer first?
Call us before you quit! Quitting could affect your legal case. If you have already quit, still contact us. There is something called “constructive discharge,” where an employee is essentially forced to quit because of discrimination, retaliation, harassment or other type of workplace misconduct. We can answer your questions, explain your options and help you make things right.
What types of employees do you represent?
We fight for employees at all levels. Our clients include factory workers, engineers, teachers, IT professionals, warehouse workers, doctors, nurses, restaurant workers, laborers, federal employees and more. Whatever your job is, we can answer your employment law questions and help you determine how to move forward.
What are my rights under Indiana sexual harassment laws?
You have a right not to be sexually harassed in the workplace or outside of work by your coworkers. Repeated instances of unwelcome physical contact, sexual advances, or verbal or visual conduct of a sexual nature may constitute illegal harassment at work. Women or men may be victims of sexual harassment. Bottom line: you do not have to go through this alone, and you need to know your legal options. Our anti-sexual harassment lawyers can help.
What constitutes wrongful termination in Indiana?
Employers in Indiana can fire employees for a wide variety of reasons. In fact, employment is never guaranteed. However, your employer is not allowed to fire you on the basis of discrimination or for whistleblowing about illegal activity. It is also illegal for your employer to fire you for reporting discrimination or sexual harassment, reporting a job injury, filing for workers’ compensation, requesting or taking FMLA leave, getting pregnant or taking maternity leave, or requesting disability accommodations. If you believe your employer has fired you or intends to fire you for any of these reasons, contact us as soon as possible.
