Challenging discrimination in the workplace

By applying extensive knowledge of federal labor and employment laws, private attorneys redress any federal Agency discrimination and level the employment playing field.
Fighting against sexual harassment
You do not have to put up with unwelcome sexual advances, sexist comments, or degrading images and emails at your workplace. These are examples of sexual harassment, which is illegal. Sexual harassment creates an unpleasant employment atmosphere and perpetuates the impression that gender relegates you to a lower status and position. Although women are most commonly targeted, men can be victims of sexual harassment as well. Responsible parties can include coworkers, supervisors and the federal agency. Harassment can take the form of physical contact, visual images, email transmissions, general derogatory statements or unwanted romantic overtures. Bates & Baum advocates for your right to work in a professional environment free from harassment.
