You should be able to feel safe and secure while on the job. You have the right to a workplace that is free from unwelcome sexual advances and other forms of sexual harassment. Sadly, sexual harassment remains a serious problem in workplaces in Hartford County and throughout the state of Connecticut. Sexual harassment comes in two basic forms: quid pro quo harassment and hostile work environment. Regardless of the specific nature of the case, employers have a duty to prevent sexual harassment, take all complaints seriously, and to respond proactively and effectively once harassment has been reported. If you or your loved one was subject to sexual harassment in the workplace, contact our Hartford County sexual harassment attorney for immediate assistance.
Similar to most other U.S. states, Connecticut is an ‘at-will’ employment jurisdiction. This means that, barring an employment agreement to the contrary, employers can hire and fire workers for virtually any reason. Indeed, companies retain significant discretion in making personnel and staffing decisions. That being said, employers cannot terminate an employee on unlawful grounds. For example, employees cannot be fired for discriminatory reasons or in retaliation for exercising their rights. Employees who have been wrongfully terminated may be entitled to financial compensation for the full value of their losses, including back wages. If you believe that you were unlawfully fired or laid off, our Hartford County wrongful termination attorneys are standing by, ready to help.
