Female lieutenant claims racial and sexual harassment

Most of our readers probably hope that their work environment will be a pleasant and fairly enjoyable place to spend the workweek. Although some employees have very positive experiences at work, others do not. Unfortunately, in some case, employees experiences sexual harassment and discrimination. These serious acts not only make it difficult for employees to tolerate the work environment, it also puts their career and livelihood at risk, which could cause some employees to be hesitant to report these situations.

Former Minneapolis employee files for whistleblower protection

Employees in Minnesota head to work everyday throughout the workweek and will generally have a pleasant experience. Unfortunately, this is not the case for all employees. Not only are some workers mistreated but they also fear reporting this mistreatment. Even when some voice their concern, those in charge retaliate against their claim. This often makes the situation worse and their employer's actions are a violation of law due to whistleblower protection.

No matter a person's age, gender and sexual orientation, residents in Minnesota seek to obtain a career that they not only feel comfortable in but are also where they are treated appropriately. When a worker experiences employment discrimination, the event could seriously impact them. A person's characteristics could lead to wrongful termination or cause an employee to quit in order to escape the workplace discrimination.

Although residents might change career paths a few times in their life, having a good secure job that they feel comfortable at is important to Minnesota workers. When an employee no longer feels comfortable or safe in the work environment, this usually presents issues that could turn into major problems. When sexual harassment occurs in the workplace, no matter their age, gender or sexual orientation, employees should understand how to correct this situation.
