Discrimination and Harassment Claims

 

I’m ready to hire DailyGC™ now.

Claims of discrimination and harassment are among the most common types of employee claims that businesses have to address, and they certainly are among the most difficult. There are numerous state and federal laws that prohibit employment discrimination on account of such areas as race, gender, age, medical condition, national origin, sexual orientation and religion. Creating a safe workplace environment that minimizes the likelihood of a discrimination claim is the best prevention against a claim, but once you have received a discrimination or harassment complaint from an employee, you must deal with it properly or you risk exposure to a very substantial monetary award.

The small business lawyers at DailyGC™ are experienced in creating procedures, policies and processes that will help to prevent against discrimination and harassment claims. We provide seminars for your employees. We have experience investigating complaints and making recommendations to management. We also provide guidance on settling discrimination and harassment claims.
