If an employer grants a favor or expects a favor from their employees in return for something, this could fall under a form of workplace harassment and or discrimination.
We’ve all heard the saying “if you scratch my back, I’ll scratch yours” and it conjures up images of seedy wheeling and dealing. Yet this simple statement can have a devastating effect when it occurs in an employer/employee relationship.
Maybe you agree to your employers request only because you fear being terminated should you not comply. This could be grounds for taking action against your employer especially if you have evidence to prove your case.
Late night work sessions can be fuel for a boss to intimidate a subordinate with promises of promotions, “if only” they comply with their wishes etc…
Such behavior isn’t ethical and shouldn’t be the basis of a working relationship.
If you’re being threatened and intimidated by a boss who clearly is holding your employment hostage for favors that fall “outside” of your normal working responsibilities please call us right away.
We offer a free consultation and work on a contingency basis where we don’t get paid unless you do.
