Most police officers are ethical. But, police officers also have control over the people they interact with. An abuse of this power is particularly bad. Police misconduct has many different forms, including:
- Unnecessary physical violence
- Unnecessary strip searches
- Sexual assault
- Coercion, blackmail or other uses of police power to force you into doing something you don’t want to do
- Racial profiling
Discrimination happens when there is a denial of an individual’s civil rights. Employment discrimination laws prevent employers from discriminatory practices in:
- job assignment
Sexual harassment is a form of discrimination that violates a person’s civil rights. This harassment can create a hostile work environment for the victim. Anyone can experience sexual harassment, not only women. Harassers are liable in both criminal and civil cases.
A whistleblower is a person who reports misconduct in an organization. Fraud, corruption, and legal violations are common causes of whistleblowing. Intimidation and retaliation happen in cases like these. All calls to our office are confidential. So don’t hesitate to get the help you need.
A class action lawsuit is where a large group of people are similarly injured. Securities class actions are investment fraud cases. Product liability or personal injury class actions involve a defective product. Consumer class actions involve illegal charges on bills. Sometimes failure to follow consumer protection laws. Employment class actions vary. Most are cases of unpaid overtime, failure to provide breaks, or workplace discrimination.
