You Don’t Have to Put up With Sexual Harassment

Common Sexual Harassment Scenarios
I have experience representing employees in sexual harassment cases involving:
- Supervisors making sexual overtures to employees
- Supervisors or coworkers making inappropriate sexual comments to employees
- Supervisors demanding sexual favors in return for benefits, promotions or raises
These and other similar actions create a hostile environment for anyone to work in. If you are a victim of sexual harassment by your employer, you do have rights. You can sue your employer for economic damages as well as intentional infliction of emotional distress. In addition, you may be able to recover compensation for any pain and suffering or medical expenses in case of illness or injury due to the sexual harassment.
Hostile Work Environment: Supervisor, Boss or Co-worker Inappropriate Actions or Comments
A hostile work environment can occur when a supervisor or other coworker acts in a certain way toward you due to your race, ethnicity, gender or sexual orientation that is severe enough to create a hostile workplace. If you are uncomfortable in your workplace due to comments or actions of your manager or coworkers based on your sexual orientation, your gender or the color of your skin, then you need to speak with a lawyer who will help protect your rights as an employee.
