Challenging discrimination in the workplace
Employment should be based upon your skills, knowledge and experience, not on arbitrary characteristics that do not affect your ability to perform your job. Federal agencies are prohibited from discriminatory practices regarding hiring, promotion, termination and types of assignments and pay. Agency personnel decisions should not be based on:
- National origin
By applying knowledge of federal labor and employment laws, private attorneys redress 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. Sexual harassment creates an unpleasant employment atmosphere and perpetuates the impression that your 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. Bev Bates strives to protect your right to work in a professional environment free from harassment.
