Seeking guidance from an experienced sexual harassment attorney can help determine guide you. We will assist you in investigating the potential claim and crafting a strategy for justice.
A number of federal laws prohibit sexual harassment in the workplace, including Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Many state laws specifically prohibit such behaviors. This includes fighting against retaliation for reporting the sexual harassment. While the most common example of sexual harassment involves a supervisor, the laws against sexual harassment extend to colleagues and in some instances individuals who are not employees.
Many of these same laws also prohibit employers from discriminating against employees based on a number of factors, including gender, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, religion, and national origin. There are also federal and state laws that prohibit employers from discriminating against job applicants based on a criminal history, disabilities, family care responsibilities, and pregnancy. Each of these laws includes specific elements that the plaintiff must prove to receive compensation.
