Discrimination Law Solution
While she was still on leave, Roseline contacted us. We reviewed her situation and her options, and drafted a letter to her employer outlining the inappropriate behavior and Roseline's potential claims. As a result, we were able to privately negotiate a severance payment for Roseline that allowed her to move on from this traumatic experience.
Roseline was facing a problem many of our clients have: if you are fired for a discriminatory reason, you can claim wrongful termination, but what if you resign because of discrimination or unlawful harassment in the workplace? If you are in a similar situation, remember there is a theory called "constructive discharge," which means if the unlawful behavior is bad enough, you might be able to show that your facially voluntary resignation was really caused by the unlawful behavior. You should talk to a lawyer before making this decision, however, because not all bad workplace situations meet the standard for constructive discharge.
