22nd September, 2015, Orange County, CA – Now more than ever, it seems that there are signs of a social consciousness surfacing as people have become more aware of their rights. Being politically correct is considered to be an expected etiquette and the emancipation of women, as well as the equal representation of minorities have both become ideals that most of us wholeheartedly aspire towards.
Similarly, it is encouraging to see our collective stance against employee discrimination, sexual harassment at work, and wrongful termination. But despite our ideological abhorrence for such acts, there seem to be so many people in the country who are as oppressed at work as one could be. A major reason for that is the unfair power dynamics that have infected the corporate culture, especially in the past two decades.
There are countless stories of employees being mistreated at work or harassed by a fellow employee or a boss. Employee discrimination still exists and wrongful termination is still rampant! In a world where we constantly talk about change, one firm has single handedly picked up a fight against employee oppression or mistreatment of any sort.
Hardin and Associates has over 15 years of experience in representing employees, with expertise in both state and federal employment laws. Their practice areas cover a wide range of issues so that they can make the maximum impact. Their practice types include trade secrets, wrongful termination, discrimination, sexual harassment, retaliation, wages and hours, class actions, employee benefits, and privacy.
An accomplishment that they should be particularly appreciated for is the fact that they have been able to recover $90 Million dollars on behalf of mistreated employees. Another thing that is praiseworthy about Hardin and Associates is the fact that they offer a free initial consultation to all their potential clients.
While some may be skeptical about the impact of such a gesture, it definitely goes to show that they are approachable. But more than that, it addresses the problem of employee oppression in general, on a profound level. Quite often, employees find themselves stuck between a rock and a hard place; they feel powerless in front of their bosses even when they know that their conduct is wrong. They don’t have the resources to openly declare war with their company, neither the choice to resign from their jobs.
So they simply take whatever comes their way, without letting anyone know. A free initial consultation can benefit an employee in such a scenario very effectively.
It offers them an outlet to discuss their dilemma with a professional who can devise practical solutions and gives them hope!
A spokesperson from Hardin and Associates was asked about their fight against employee mistreatment and their free consultation offer, she said, “Often times, talking to a professional who is optimistic about your case can give you the strength to fight for your rights. Our free consultation offer is a way we offer our hand to those who need our help. It also makes us more accessible which is exactly what we want to be.”
Perhaps more firms need to step up and join Hardin and Associates in their fight against employee mistreatment.
