Birmingham Workplace Harassment Attorneys

Dedicated to Fighting for Equality in the Workplace

There are various laws and ordinances in place that protect employees from harassment due to their race, gender, age, and other distinguishing factors. While we normally think of workplace harassment as involving sexual harassment, this is not always the case. Individuals can be victims of several different forms of workplace harassment besides sexual harassment.

There are two different kinds of treatment that can constitute harassment:

  • The alleged harassment is severe or pervasive enough to create a hostile work environment for the victim
  • The harassment results in a change in the victim's employment status or benefits (e.g. a demotion, wrongful termination, denial of promotion)

Common Examples of Workplace Harassment

The following are common forms of harassment that occur in workplaces in Alabama:

  • Unwelcome comments or demeaning behavior related to a person’s race, color, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, gender, age, or disability
  • Racial slurs and personal insults
  • Derogatory language, homophobic slurs, or disparaging remarks about someone's perceived sexual orientation
  • Expressions of disgust or intolerance toward a particular race
  • Intimidation through threats or displaying discriminatory symbols
  • Arguing about religion or attempting to change someone's viewpoint regarding religion
  • Physical conduct such as hitting, pushing, groping, and other forms of unwelcome touching
  • Ignoring the contributions of workers age 40 and over
  • Age-related jokes
  • Displaying offensive images or making obscene gestures
