Sexual Harassment in the Workplace
Mitra Law Group: Tenacious Advocates for Victims of Sexual Harassment and Hostile Work Environments. Call (503) 782-0000.
First and foremost, as a managing partner of Mitra Law Group, I need to tell you that any form of work place sexual harassment really pisses me off. But what really throws me over the edge is an employer who fires an employee for reporting sexual harassment. Our firm is dedicated to representing employees (women or men) who have been sexually harassed and then forced to resign or worse were fired under pretense of poor performance or other made up reasons. When victims of sexual harassment face a personal attack on their dignity and self-worth, we stand by them and teach their employer what their Mamma didn’t, respect.
What is Sexual Harassment/ Hostile Work Environment?
Sexual harassment can take on many forms. Repeated sexual comments to or in your presence, subtle or overt sexual innuendos, leering or physical touching all constitute sexual harassment if it is done at work or during a work-related event, even if a social event. Pressure for dates or sex or receiving sexually-charged messages, text, email or social media also qualify as sexual harassment.
If sexual harassment at work is bothering you, do not quit. Call our office for a free consultation about your rights. If you are experiencing retaliation for reporting sexual harassment, don’t wait until you are forced out or fired, call us for help.
Who is liable for sexual harassment?
Employers, regardless of their size, can be liable for sexual harassment even if they are not the direct offender or had no knowledge of the harassment. If they tolerated a hostile work environment or should have reasonably known about the sexual harassment, they can be held accountable for damages. The individual perpetrator is also directly liable as well as all the HR personnel and managers who failed to take any action to protect your rights.
