SEXUAL HARASSMENT - Law and Attorneys
Sexual harassment law has evolved over the last several decades to protect employees from inappropriate treatment in the workplace such as intimidating conduct or sexual coercion in exchange for benefits at work. This type of behavior is a form of employment discrimination. Federal law prohibits discrimination in the workplace and provides standards employers must adhere too. Any person who feels they have been harassed at work or in school should immediately contact a sexual harassment attorney.
Sexual Harassment Laws
Sexual harassment laws touch on a wide array of inappropriate behavior including use of a position of authority to gain sexual favors; making lewd comments or physical evaluations of coworkers, inappropriately touching another; overtly harassing another; or subtly using their position as a means of gaining a victim's confidence in order to seduce them. A sexual harassment attorney can aid you with any type of harassment instance.
Sexual Harassment Attorneys
State courts take any accusations in a sexual harassment lawsuit seriously. Typically the company or institution where the harassment has taken place will be a party to the suit in addition to the harasser, and will have their own sexual harassment attorney. It is very difficult for a party to succeed in a sexual harassment claim without the use of a sexual harassment attorney who can assist the party in filing and arguing their claim(s).
