It is common to see stories about cases where an employee is no longer with a company because he or she was discriminated against, or sexually harassed, or retaliated against in some form. These are unfortunate stories, and it would be great if these things never happen. Sadly, they do, and when the case goes to court, both sides of the situation have to protect their interests and defend their legal position.
