STAND UP FOR YOUR RIGHTS AGAINST SEXUAL HARASSMENT
Sexual harassment at work does more than demoralize you on a daily basis; it can affect your performance and your ability to excel and to move ahead. It’s important to know that you do not have to put up with humiliating, degrading and intimidating behavior.
Since 2004, the attorneys at Diefer Law Group, P.C., have an unwavering commitment to end discrimination and harassment. One way to do this is to keep a record of the date and time and what was said or done. Any evidence or witnesses you have will improve the strength of your case.
WHEN TO FILE A CIVIL LAWSUIT
Do you have enough evidence? It can be hard to know. That’s why we offer a free initial consultation. We will listen to what happened and tell you how we can help. We will also help you understand what you can do to help yourself or improve your case.
If you have told the harasser to stop and informed the supervisor, manager or HR, and nothing has been done, a civil lawsuit may be your next best step. Sexual harassment at work causes great stress, can negatively affect your finances and ability to do a good job, and therefore impact your career. This is especially true if you have experienced retaliation after making a complaint.
