Sexual Harassment Contributes To A Hostile Work Environment
Employees in the tri-state area are protected from sexual harassment by federal and state laws. While you may know that sexual harassment in the workplace is wrong, you may not know what to do about it. You may mistakenly think that there is nothing you can do if the individual who is harassing you was not disciplined.
You may have a valid sexual harassment claim even if the individual who harassed you was not terminated, demoted or disciplined for his or her harassing actions. Our lawyers strive for legal excellence and strive to prove that the harassing behavior interfered with your ability to perform your job or that the harassing behavior contributed to a hostile work environment.
Examples of sexual harassment may include:
- Sending a co-worker sexually explicit emails, videos, letters or texts
- Telling sexual jokes
- Asking sexual questions about a co-worker’s sexual orientation, sex life or sexual history
- Inappropriate touching of a co-worker
- Making sexual gestures or comments
Our attorneys take great care to focus on the details of your sexual harassment claim. We tailor our representation to meet your needs and arrive at customized solutions for your situation.
