Florida Workplace Counseling Lawyer
Having issues at your workplace? You’re not alone. Studies estimate that nearly 71 % of Americans report that they are looking for new jobs because of unhappiness in the workplace, including due to being passed over for promotions, not being properly compensated, or because of conflict with coworkers.
The question is – what are you going to do about it? Some employees may opt to take their concerns to Human Resources and others just quit, but are these the right moves? While certain complaints to your Human Resources may provide you protections if you find yourself retaliated against at a later time (ie like your boss finds out you complained about a racist comment), other types of complaints may not provide you any elevated protection and leave you exposed for potential retaliation without recourse. Similarly, if you leave without complaining and giving your employer the chance to make the situation right, you may nix any chance of bringing a claim against the company later on for the treatment you endured.
Consulting with an experienced Florida workplace counseling lawyer is the smartest move to make when you’re deciding how to address issues in the workplace. At Scott Wagner and Associates, a single consultation with our experienced attorneys can provide you with the advice you need to resolve your issues and get advice for how to move forward.
But what if you do not want to file a lawsuit or take legal action? Do you really need to talk to an attorney? Often times, clients come in to consultations to explain that their issues in the workplace have been going on for years, but they did not consult with an attorney because they did not want to file a lawsuit.
Just because you seek a consultation with our office does not mean you have to (or can, or should) file a lawsuit or take other legal action. Sometimes the recommendation or consultation may result in us helping you to draft a proper complaint to your boss to try to resolve the issue yourself. Many times, a client’s issues can be solved by a single consultation with no need for further representation. However, if ongoing representation is necessary, we can discuss potential options for that, as well.
Do not fall into the trap of taking matters into their your hands, only to fail to take steps to ensure you are protected from retaliation. For example, if you are complaining about a violation of a law, rule, or regulation in the workplace as a whistleblower, are you following the complaint requirements under the law to ensure you are protected if you are fired for your complaints? With a consultation to address these issues, we can help.
