Avoid claims of employee harassment with legal help

Operating a business in Michigan is challenging on many levels. Aside from the multitude of corporate responsibilities the entity must maintain in order to be compliant, it must also abide by the state and federal laws that protect and serve American workers. Even the most careful and socially cognizant employer can make mistakes with regard to managing employees and those mistakes can manifest into detrimental claims of employment harassment.

Under a variety of state and federal laws, employees can fall into several protected classes. These classes protect the employee from employment-based harassment and ill treatment based on certain factors. Protected classes can include age, race, religion and other elements. While employers may sometimes be generally aware of protected classes, they may not be completely familiar with the legal nuances involved.

Errors made during the hiring, demotion or termination processes of an employee can come back against an employer as claims of employment harassment. These claims can hurt corporate morale, damage the company's reputation and have other deleterious effects even when the alleged or perceived harassment was unintentional on the part of the company. Working with seasoned employment litigation professionals can help companies avoid such employment problems when they must make the difficult decisions to not hire, demote or to let workers go.
