Representing Victims Of Sexual Harassment
Sexual harassment in the workplace takes numerous forms. Co-workers, bosses, directors, managers and third-party vendors who deal with employers on a regular basis are all capable of sexual harassment. Some acts of sex harassment are so subtle that the victim may be unsure if he or she is the target. Other acts are so blatant that there is no mistaking the intent of the perpetrator. Many believe that only women are victims of sex harassment, but men are also vulnerable to predators who engage in these unlawful acts. Men and women may both be found liable for acts of sexual harassment at work.
We are dedicated to protecting victims of sex harassment in the workplace. We’ve represented those who have suffered from various acts of sexual harassment, including:
- Demanding sexual acts
- Offering additional hours, pay or benefits in return for sexual favors
- Threatening to terminate employment or demote an employee for rebuking a predator’s demands
- Displaying or disseminating pornographic materials electronically or in printed form
- Commenting about an individual’s sexuality or sexual preferences
- Touching another inappropriately
- Making false sexual claims to others about engaging in sexual acts
Sex harassment is broadly defined and considered to be a form of gender discrimination, which could also give rise to an additional charge of workplace discrimination. Some cases are so severe that the offender could potentially face criminal charges in addition to being held accountable in the civil courts.
