The Sanders Firm, P.C.: Equal Protection and Supervisor or Entity Liability

In the area of equal protection, The Sanders Firm, P.C. offers clients representation when there has been supervisor or entity liability. As with other areas of civil rights law that come under the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution, supervisor or entity liability covers a range of situations, including areas such as sexual harassment, retaliation, and various discriminatory practices, including those related to suspect class violations.

Taking Responsibility

In the case of either supervisor or entity responsibility, the law protects citizens who are in some way interacting with a government entity or employed by one, such as a court or legislature, from any type of violation of equal protection. If one suffers a violation of their civil rights under the Equal Protection Clause, then individual supervisors or the entity itself can be held liable.

For example, if a supervisor is involved in sexual harassment, using their position of power in the harassment, they are liable. Likewise, if an employee whom that supervisor oversees is sexually harassing a coworker, it is reported to the supervisor, and that supervisor does not follow proper procedure in addressing the harassment, they would also be liable. This protection extends to anyone who in some way is exposed to the entity or supervisor in an official capacity, such as a citizen who is involved in a court case.

Judging those Judging

In applying the Fourteenth Amendment and its protections to the court, the message is that no one is beyond the reproach of the law. Another way to look at it is that the courts and their employees as well as legislatures and their workers must bear the same responsibilities that are required of others. Obviously if this were not the case, then the justice system and specifically the courts could become corrupt if they wielded their power unjustly and with no consequence on-hand.

Understanding Your Rights

At The Sanders Firm, P.C., we believe wholeheartedly that it is essential that you understand your rights in connection to supervisor and entity liability. Being fully informed about the law and what is and is not permitted gives each citizen the power to deal with violations of their civil rights. Knowledge is an important aspect of freedom and knowledge of the law helps to ensure that we keep our liberties intact. However, just as important is the power of action. Thus, if in some way your rights under the Fourteenth Amendment have been violated it is your right to seek justice.
