Years of Experience with Employment Law Matters
The attorneys at our law firm have successfully represented clients alleging offensive sexual behavior that creates a hostile work environment, such as:
- Visual behavior: This can include making sexual gestures or displaying sexually explicit or offensive images, such as pornography in the workplace.
- Verbal behavior: This can include offensive comments of a sexual nature, jokes, epithet, slurs, verbal abuse, graphic comments about someone's body parts, or describing someone using sexually degrading words.
- Physical behavior: This can include inappropriately touching someone, forcing someone to touch a co-worker in a sexual fashion, assaulting someone or unwanted sexual advances.
If the behavior is isolated or one-time in nature, it may not constitute sexual harassment and it may not rise to a level to create a hostile work environment. However, if the behavior is repeated or is pervasive enough, we will develop a case against your employer. You may also have a case if your employer retaliates against you after you complained of a hostile work environment.
No one needs to put up with a hostile work environment. Our lawyers handle many hostile work environment cases on a contingency fee basis. This means you will not have to pay any legal fees unless we successfully recover compensation from your employer. Compensation may include back pay, front pay, policy changes, actual damages, damages for emotional distress, attorney fees, and punitive damages.
