Sexual harassment at the workplace is illegal. Sexual harassment can have a destructive influence on your career as well as your emotional health.

State and federal laws protect workers from sexual harassment. All too often, however, these harmful practices persist, leaving employees to contend with unfair treatment, limited employment activities and physiological consequences. Unfortunately, many victims of sexual harassment are reluctant to come forth with a claim, fearing retaliation and job loss.
Sexual harassment claims are broken down into two general categories:
Claims in which an authority figure requests sexual favors in exchange for promotion, continued employment and other considerations.
Claims involving inappropriate behavior in the workplace, including sexual jokes, pictures and offensive acts.
Our employment discrimination and gender discrimination attorneys have decades of experience handling employment disputes for individuals who work at small and large corporations. We are especially adept at handling harassment and discrimination claims in which there is a systemic pattern of harassment or discrimination at a place of work.
Recently, there have been increased complaints of discrimination against women in the pharmaceutical industry. If you work in the pharmaceutical industry and feel you have been mistreated at work, our attorneys are here to help you explore your legal options.
If you have been subjected to sexual harassment at work, it is important to remember that the law is on your side.
