If your coworker is harassing you at work, you don’t have to put up with it. Coworker harassment is serious and we can help stop it today. Call California discrimination attorney Craig Murphy now.
What you can do about a co-employee making derogatory comments about you really depends on the extent and nature of the comments. If it’s a co-employee and you feel you have the ability to just say, cut it out, it might be the easiest option. In most situations, the offending co-employee is not going to, they’re just going to use that as bait to get worse. What you need to do is bring it to the attention of your supervisor. If you have an employee manual, follow that employee manual as to what it tells you to do in terms of how you report it, who you report it to, and how it’s documented.
If your employer then comes in and takes care of the situation, good. But what do you do if they don’t? What if you followed all of your policies and procedures and your company doesn’t do anything about it? You do not have to be harassed at work in order to keep your job and provide for your family. If your employer is not doing what they are supposed to under the law, you need to talk to an attorney. You need to seek legal advice and determine what the next steps are for you to protect yourself in the workplace. These are legitimate claims. This is behavior that should not be allowed. Your employer should do what is necessary. If they don’t, they should be held accountable.
