Our workplace and work space are important parts of all of our lives. It is where we go to contribute to our communities, ply our trades and provide for our families. For this reason issues such as discrimination, harassment or mistreatment in the workplace can cause high amounts of stress and worry as well as be both financially and emotionally disastrous. Moreover, because of our financial security and that of our families is based on our employment, we may feel fearful of repercussions if we speak out. However, it is important to remember that strict employment law governs the treatment of workers in New Jersey, Pennsylvania as well as the rest of the United States. These laws dictate the treatment and safety of workers and provide avenues for relief and compensation for those workers who are not provided with a safe and ethical work environment.
