We represent employees who have been subjected to sexual harassment in the workplace. Sexual harassment can typically occur when an employee is subjected to unwanted sexual advances, comments, and inappropriate physical touching in the workplace. Both women and men can experience unlawful sexual harassment.
Similar to other forms of unlawful harassment, the employer has a legal duty to take prompt remedial action upon learning that an employee is being subjected to sexual harassment. An employer’s failure to appropriately and effectively respond to complaints of sexual harassment can be grounds for legal action.
As with all employment discrimination claims, sexual harassment claims tend to be very fact specific. Therefore, you must consult with an attorney to determine whether the facts of your case constitute unlawful sexual harassment. If you believe you have been subjected to unlawful sexual harassment, call us today to learn more about your legal options and the steps you can take to hold your employer accountable.
