Battling Sexual Harassment In The Workplace
Sexual harassment is a form of gender discrimination that is prohibited by both state and federal law. Unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors and other verbal and physical conduct of a sexual nature that unreasonably affects an individual’s employment or creates an intimidating, hostile or offensive work environment may constitute harassment.
At Mezibov Butler, our employment attorneys understand that most people have to work and that simply walking out of an uncomfortable, stressful or even humiliating work environment is often not an option. We also understand that working in such an environment can take an emotional and physical toll on people that can be just as or more serious than loss of income. Because our attorneys understand the complicated interplay of issues that often arise as a result of sexual harassment claims, we can work with you to attempt to achieve an overarching result that will protect your financial, emotional and legal interests.
Sexual harassment is an unfortunate reality for many employees across the country and Mezibov Butler has successfully represented both male and female clients confronted with workplace harassment. Whether you or facing a hostile environment or a promise of job-related benefits in exchange for sexual favors, contact us and our attorneys will work with you to find an appropriate resolution to the situation.
