Representation When Workplace Behavior Turns Unprofessional
Society continues to fight back against perpetrators of sexual harassment or assault, particularly with the “me too” movement. However, unlawful sexual harassment at work still occurs.
We at David L. Kramer, P.C., represent victims of workplace sexual harassment. Whether you work for a small business, large employer or government organization, you have rights. You are not required to tolerate unwelcome advances or offensive conduct.
Fighting Against Those In Positions Of Power
While sexual harassment can happen to anyone, women are often the victims. There are two types of sexual harassment:
- Quid pro quo. This occurs when someone offers something of value in exchange for sexual favors.
- Hostile work environment. This occurs when the workplace is comprised of toxic sexual harassment, including consistent inappropriate or offensive behavior.
Perpetrators of harassment can be executives, supervisors, co-workers and even clients. After you experience harassment at work, you may take both informal and formal actions to stop such conduct.
The Process To Stop Harassment
The first step of stopping sexual harassment typically involves reporting the conduct to your employer. However, this may be ineffective. We will work with you to determine how to effectively end the harassment and potentially obtain compensation for what you have suffered.
