Sexual Harassment Law

Sexual harassment is a form of employment discrimination that violates United States federal law and, in many cases, state and local law. In general, employers are required to take steps to prevent sexual harassment in the workplace and, if sexual harassment is reported, to take immediate action to address the situation. Furthermore, any employee who reports sexual harassment is legally protected against retaliation from her or his employer.

Ziegler, Ziegler & Associates LLP protects the rights of employees who have been victims of sexual harassment in many forms, including:

  • Direct requests for sexual contact
  • Unwelcome sexual advances such as requests for dates or other meetings outside the workplace
  • Verbal or physical contact of a sexual nature
  • Sexual assault or rape
  • Being forced to work within a hostile work environment
  • Inappropriate workplace behavior, including, but not limited to, the use of derogatory language towards women and/or displays of pornographic images in the workplace
  • Unfair and discriminatory treatment including, but not limited to, being denied opportunities for advancement and/or promotion on the basis of gender
