Types of Sexual Harassment
At Walston Cross, we have extensive experience handling employment law issues, and a long track record of success defending the rights of our clients. We have successfully handled numerous sexual harassment cases. Sexual harassment falls into two categories:
- Quid pro quo: This type of harassment occurs when job advancement, continued employment and other job-related opportunities hinge on the employee’s acceptance or rejection of the harassment.
- Hostile work environment: This type of harassment occurs when sexual jokes or other inappropriate comments, unwanted touching and lewd behavior interferes with an employee’s performance or creates an intimidating or offensive work environment.
If you are confronted with sexual harassment at your place of work, we understand that it may be difficult to come forward for fear of losing your job. We want you to know that it is illegal for your employer to retaliate against you in any way for making accusations of sexual harassment. You don’t have to put up with harassment for another day! If you are harassed at work, you have a right to stop the harassment, and you have a right to money.
We have stood up for victims of sexual harassment in the workplace against large corporations, state government entitles and other formidable defendants. We know how to put a stop to harassment at the workplace, and we know how to get you the maximum money you are entitled to. We urge you to seek the counsel of a qualified attorney so that your rights are protected and the responsible parties are held accountable.
