Yes, you may be able to sue your employer if they, or your supervisor, have acted illegally. Federal and state employment laws make it illegal for your employer to discriminate against you based on certain protected classes, such as race, sex, or religion.
Also, sexual harassment, retaliation, failing to pay earned overtime or past wages, and failing to afford employees adequate breaks are all prohibited under employment laws.
Some workplace harassment and discrimination may be difficult to establish.
If your coworkers or boss create a hostile work environment by making jokes or inappropriate comments based on your age, appearance, race, religion, or sex, this constitutes workplace harassment.
If your boss or supervisor requests a sexual favor in return for a promotion or raise, this is also harassment.
If you are passed over for a job or a raise due to your race or sex, you have been discriminated against.
Overtime wages are available to employees who work more than 40 hours in one week or those who work 7 days in one week.
