If you believe you are a victim of workplace discrimination, harassment, or illegal termination, below are three steps you can take to make the process easier for both you and your employment attorney.

  1. Read and Review Company Guidelines

Each company has a different set of guidelines depending on the type of situation, and you may be surprised at what steps your employer will take. Reviewing the guidelines before consulting an attorney may help answer some company specific questions you may have. However, if this does not resolve the problem or the problem gets worse, it is always best to consult a labor dispute attorney at East Tennessee Employment Law.

  1. Keep a Record of Everything

Keeping a record of all instances of workplace harassment and/or discrimination, such as phone calls, emails, written documents, pictures, videos, or any other interactions between you and your employer will be extremely helpful in building your case. In these situations, it is better to have too much information than to not have enough. Your attorney will be able to go through all the evidence you bring to your initial meeting to determine if you have a case.

  1. Be Patient

When stuck in these situations, it can be difficult to wait through the long process. The employment lawyers at East Tennessee Employment Law will fight for you, so it is important to be patient to ensure that you get the win you deserve.
