Those in “Protected Classes” are Winning Workplace Abuse Lawsuits

By ABC

There has been great national news stories in The United States regarding people in protected classes winning workplace abuse cases. Are you a member of a protected class? Just about everyone is.

Below, is the definition of “protected class” according to the national “Equal Employment Opportunity Program”

*******************************************************

Protected Class: The groups protected from the employment discrimination by law. These groups include men and women on the basis of sex; any group which shares a common race, religion, color, or national origin; people over 40; and people with physical or mental handicaps. Every U.S. citizen is a member of some protected class, and is entitled to the benefits of EEO law. However, the EEO laws were passed to correct a history of unfavorable treatment of women and minority group members.

*******************************************************

Only those in protected classes, have legal recourse for workplace bullying and mobbing, but only IF they can prove that the abuse was due to discrimination against their protected class. If you’re in a protected class, learn more through the link below. ABC

  2. Workplace abuse is alive and well in the United States.
    I am working at a place where it is truly honed to a fine art. Work is hard to come by for many and I think this lets employers think they can run roughshod.

    If there is a lawyer out there who wants to help me with this situation, I would like to hear from them.
