About Your Employee Advocate
A large portion of the working population encounters harassment and discrimination in the workplace on a daily basis and unfortunately the employee suffers from this injustice. Some put up with it, some walk away (if they can afford) and others fight back.
Your Employee Advocate (YEA) helps others fight back. YEA is composed of a group of human resource professionals, as well as others industry professionals who possess college degrees, certifications and have received distinguished awards in various fields. YEA is endorsed and backed by a retired Federal EEOC Judge who serves on the advisory board and we have partnered with other support groups that can help you cope with the health harming effects of working in a hostile work environment . On average we have over two decades of research, work experience and accreditation in Human Resources Management and Consulting with subject matter expertise in Employment Law, Labor Relations, Conflict Resolution, Compensation and Benefits.
Many of our advisors have personally experienced discrimination and harassment (also referred to as bullying) in the workplace. They have been through the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) complaint process, civil litigation, mediation and settlements. Having been on the receiving end of these illegal workplace practices, we fully understand what you are going through and how this can adversely affect you emotionally, mentally, physically, spiritually and financially. Further in the early stages of these situations we are aware of just how costly legal assistance can be for advice or document preparation services. Many lawyers will not even discuss your case until after you have exhausted all administrative remedies and received the "right to sue letter" from the EEOC.
You are not alone, we are here to assist by providing a personal, affordable alternative that will guide and equip you with the information and tools you need to protect your rights as an employee which are afforded to you by law.
