Employees - Overtime

Today, sexual harassment is a common problem in the American workforce. What is sexual harassment? Generally speaking, any language or actions that are sexually suggestive or demeaning are considered harassment. Such actions should be taken very seriously and merit legal action.
If you employer fires you as a form of sexual harassment or discrimination, your job may have been wrongfully terminated. Wrongful termination refers to a variety of situations in which you employer terminates your job without a good reason or for a wrong reason. If you have been wrongfully terminated, you might want to consider pursuing a severance package. Sometimes, employers offer terminated employees favorable severance packages if the employee agrees to not take legal action.
