When you have earned a job or position and you have someone that is trying to take your place or is trying to get you out of your job, there are different things that you need to take into consideration. If you aren't sure what you need to do to protect your job and are performing well at your position, you want to talk with a lawyer dealing with employment law right away. Here are some of the signs that it may be time to meet with a legal professional.
You Are Getting Disciplinary Notices Unreasonably
If you have gotten more than one disciplinary notice for an unreasonable reason, and you think that your job is in jeopardy, you want to contact a lawyer. If you think that your employer is trying to set you up, bait you into doing something that you could get written up for, or target you, it's time to see if what they are doing is against the law. You want to take action before they take your job.
Going to Work is Uncomfortable
Going to work shouldn't become uncomfortable and unprofessional because someone has decided that they don't like you or that they want to make you uncomfortable. You want to document everything that is going on so you can take the information to your lawyer, and so they can see if you are being discriminated against.
You Think the Treatment is Illegal
If you think that your employer or someone that you work with is trying to get rid of you because of your age, race, gender, religion, or because of your personality or other reasons, you want a legal representative. If people are bullying you, giving you anxiety and mental health issues, and causing you fear, you need to find an employment attorney to help you keep your job or to get you a severance if you have to walk away.
If you think that you can no longer stand to work in your workplace because you feel uncomfortable because of how you have been treated, and you have been getting in trouble for made up or untrue reasons and you are being targeted, you need to get in touch with an employment lawyer. Explore all of your options, talk with a legal expert to see if what is being done to you is a crime, and then move on from there to take action.
