While U.S. labor and employment laws have helped ensure for the fair and equitable treatment of millions of U.S. workers, a significant number of U.S. employers continue to engage in activities that violate these laws. From a manager who makes disparaging comments about an employee's religion to a worker who is fired for taking time off to care for an ailing loved one, employers who fail to uphold and violate employment laws can and should be held accountable.
Too often, workers who are the victims of workplace harassment, discrimination or retaliation aren't aware of their rights and therefore fail to come forward and speak up about and against these types of unfair and discriminatory practices. Consequently, nothing changes and offending employers are allowed to continue to violate federal laws and take advantage of and victimize employees.
