There are many simple things that you can do to protect your legal rights, if you get involved in an uncomfortable situation with your employer. These actions apply to all situations ranging from wrongful conduct, racial discrimination, sexual harassment, criminal activity
and so forth. Taking these actions will assist your
attorney in fortifying your case and get you the proper justice you deserve.
1. Preserve all and any evidence you have.
Save any emails, text messages, documents that prove your employers wrongdoing. Make copies of them and place them in a personal folder for your attorney.
2. Don’t communicate or provide evidence to anybody.
Unless you are required by company guidelines to report to HR. it is imperative that all information should be delivered to your attorney. This is key because this creates attorney-client communication privileges and no one will ever find out what was because your lawyer is legally there to protect you.
3. Get a copy of your personnel file.
All employers in Massachusetts are legally obligated to provide that personnel file within 5 days. Not doing so is a violation of the Attorney General’s regulations and that misconduct by your employer can be reported.
Employment Litigation encompasses many different types of disputes between employees and employers.
