Racial Slurs and Jokes
Florida employers are required to provide a safe working environment for all employees, regardless of race, color or national origin. This applies not only to physical threats, but also to racist jokes and slurs that are used or promoted in the workplace. Such slurs and jokes could be considered a hostile workplace.
Attorney William M. Julien, in Boynton Beach, has more than 20 years of experience in employment law cases, dedicating a great deal of his practice to the aggressive representation of people facing discrimination and hostile workplaces. Mr. Julien has a solid track record of success in these kinds of cases and will be glad to discuss your concerns with you.
Broward County Workplace Racism Attorney
State and federal laws are intended to protect employees from a hostile workplace. This means that managers and co-workers cannot harass you or allow workplace behavior that can make a reasonable person uncomfortable. This includes crude jokes and remarks, slurs and other comments that are severe, recurring and/or pervasive, or even hanging a noose.
If you feel you are being forced to quit – or that you have no choice but to endure the harassment if you want to keep your job – you are in a hostile workplace.
