When employees are faced with a new supervisory structure, there are different rules and protocol that need to be followed and it’s often a situation where change is difficult. Sometimes, it’s a lack of communication between the employee and the supervisor, and sometimes it’s a clash of personalities, it could be the result of some discriminatory motive. When you come to see us at Gould & Berg in White Plains, NY and want to speak with us about your employment situation, we try to get to the root of the problem and then give you advice going forward on how you should handle that and every case is very different, every factual situation or circumstances are very different. For some employees it might mean having to sit down one on one with the supervisor in a way that is structured and organized and we help you walk through whatever talking points you need to raise in order to make the environment better. Sometimes it is the result of discriminatory action, people come to the table often with preset notions and bias that are built in for life and that doesn’t change in the work place unfortunately and it could be that the actions that are being taken against you or the difficulty in the relationship is the result of discrimination and unlawful motive. If that is the case then we can always discuss whether or not you are interested in bringing a claim against the company and what needs to be done in order to have that claim successful or viable in a court.
