Attorneys protecting employees from sexual harassment


All employees have certain rights granted to them regarding safety and fair treatment in the workplace. Any individual or organization that attempts to violate these rights or otherwise create a hostile work environment may be subject to civil and criminal penalties. One of the rights afforded to all employees is protection from unwelcome sexual advances or conduct that impacts a victim's performance or creates an offensive or frightening workplace, which is otherwise known as sexual harassment.

Employees are protected from sexual harassment in the workplace by both federal and state laws. There are typically two types of sexual harassment: acts that create a hostile work environment and acts that are expected to be tolerated as a condition of employment or advancement. Regardless of the intent of the perpetrator, there are certain elements that victims must prove in a sexual harassment case. The victim must show that he or she felt the conduct was abusive or offensive and that another reasonable person in the same situation would have objectively felt the same.

If this proof is established, the employer of the victim may be liable for resulting damages, in addition to the perpetrator. Employers may be liable in situations where there are negative actions taken regarding the victim's employment status or growth or where a hostile work environment was created and the employer failed to correct the situation when it knew or should have known of the conduct.

Regardless of the specific acts being committed, all employees who may be subject to sexual harassment are entitled to protection while at their workplaces. The attorneys at the Law Offices of Allan A. Sigel, P.C., will advocate on behalf of sexual harassment victims and ensure that these rights are defended. Our lawyers are experienced in protecting the rights and safety of employees and will assist them with their harassment claims. They will gather the required evidence of the conduct and involve all of the parties who may have liability for the conduct in question.
