Specializing in Representation for Employers and Employees
If a person is experiencing harassment in the workplace because of his or her sex, marital status, race, religion, beliefs, sexual orientation or age, that person may be able to bring a harassment claim against his or her employer. Words, as well as physical conduct, can amount to a form of harassment. Whether someone intends to harass you or not is irrelevant. What matters is how the action or words are perceived by the employee and their objective impact.
There is a strict three-month time limit for disability or harassment claims, so seeking legal representation as early as possible is in your best interests. At Waldegraves, we provide quality legal services for both employers and employees in employment law matters.
Employees who have been harassed tend to be traumatized and may have a difficult time describing the incident. However, it is important to disclose the harassment in detail to your employment law solicitor. You only need to show that your boss or co-worker might be guilty of harassment, then the burden of proof shifts to the accused.
Our London harassment solicitors will have an in-depth discussion about your situation, making certain we understand the nature of situation, the actions being taken by the employer and the details of the case. We will work to make certain that you receive the compensation you are entitled to.
