Sexual Harassment Attorney with Almost 15 Years of Experience
Sexual harassment is against the law.
You may be male or female, young or old, gay or straight, a manager or an entry-level worker. Whatever your status, you have an absolute right to be free from sexual harassment in the workplace.
Nathaniel David Johnson, Employment Law Litigator, has almost 15 years of experience as an employment litigation lawyer. I will aggressively pursue your claim. I have taken on every size employer, from a small business to the federal government. I can help you pursue a claim of sexual harassment.
Sexual harassment claims are on the increase.
According to a study by the National Partnership for Women & Families, between 1992 and 2003, sexual assault claims by Caucasian women rose 5 percent, claims by African American women rose 42 percent, and claims by Hispanic women rose 120 percent. For the same period, claims by men increased by 5.7 percent.
Juries have awarded multimillion dollar punitive damages awards. News of these victories appears frequently in the press, but that has not stopped the incidences of sexual harassment.
You have the right to work in a harassment-free environment.
A combination of state and federal laws provides you with the right to work in an environment that is free of sexual harassment. Many forms of behavior can create a hostile work environment. These include:
- Verbal sexual abuse
- Physical sexual abuse
- Sexual harassment
- An offer of sex for advancement ("quid pro quo")
- Any sexually demeaning or degrading speech or conduct
- Obscene language
A variety of behaviors may constitute sexual harassment. These behaviors have no place in the workplace.
You do not have to be the target to have a claim.
The essence of a sexual harassment claim is the existence of a hostile environment - even if no one is harassing you directly. If there is an air of vulgarity, and you find it offensive, you may have a claim. If Adam is pursuing Beth and it affects your work environment, you may have a claim.
