Workplace Discrimination Lawsuit Loans
Workplace discrimination is illegal. An employee cannot be subject to discrimination based on their race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability and gender association. This includes decisions on hiring or firing, promotions, pay, benefits, training, etc. If you fall victim to discrimination in the workplace, the EEOC is the gatekeeper to pursuing your lawsuit.
Workplace Harassment Lawsuit Loans
Workplace harassment can be uncomfortable and even hostile. It includes sexual conversations or advances, inappropriate jokes or general hostility and bullying. This type of behavior can come from a boss or even a fellow employee.
Sexual harassment is the most common form of a harassment case. Generally, the employee claims that the employer or senior employee made sexual demands in exchange for preferential treatment.
Wrongful Termination Lawsuit Loans
Wrongful termination occurs when an employer fires an employee for the wrong reason. This includes discrimination, or for refusing to partake in illegal or wrongful activities.
In the event of wrongful termination, it is essential for the employee (or plaintiff) to obtain proof to back up their claim.
Unpaid Wages Lawsuit Loans
Unpaid wages claims involve wages that are never received by the employee. These unpaid wages are earned from overtime, commission or bonuses. If you are filing a claim for unpaid wages, it is important to hold onto pay stubs and any other documentation, which will serve as solid evidence.
How Lawsuit Loans Help Employment Lawsuit Plaintiffs
In employment lawsuits, the plaintiff is likely out of work due to a hostile work environment, wrongful termination, unpaid wages, etc. Little to no income during a lawsuit adds to the financial strain that many plaintiffs face. Employment lawsuit loans help meet the financial demands of the plaintiff, until they receive settlement.
