Sexual Harassment Lawsuits Lawyer
Recent events in the media have made it clear that sexual harassment is still alive and well in the workplace. Even with strict laws that require employers to provide workers a safe, non-hostile work environment, sexual harassment still occurs. It is not always easy to know the correct action to take when you are encountering sexual advances or become the target of offensive sexual behavior at work. You may need an experienced sexual harassment lawyer to help you determine the best options to protect your rights.
Any type of unwanted sexual advances, offensive sexual language, request for sexual favors or other types of harassment of a sexual nature are against the law. However, it is not always easy to know what to do. Those who report sexual harassment are protected under the law from retaliation from their employer, but that does not mean it does not occur. You may worry about losing your job or being singled out at work as a “troublemaker.” You need to know your rights and legal options.
Are You a Victim of Sexual Harassment?
If you have been working in a hostile or offensive work environment due to sexual harassment, you have rights. Employers are required by law to investigate any claim of sexual harassment. They are also restricted from any type of retaliation toward an employee that reports sexual harassment. When your rights are violated, you may need to seek legal representation to get justice. If you have suffered a job loss, demotion, continued harassment or threats after reporting sexual harassment, you may have a legal case against your employer.
