Enlisting the help of an experienced Pasadena hostile work environment attorney is very wise when taking legal action. Proving you have a valid case is easier with the assistance of a legal professional who understands the nuances of all applicable laws in these circumstances.

  • Saving any evidence of hostility, such as emails, chat logs, etc.
  • Making a note of the date and time when an incident of hostility occurs, and writing a description of the incident
  • Identifying the negative consequences you’ve experienced as a result of working in a hostile environment
