Connecticut Workplace Sexual Harassment Lawyer

Combating Sexual Harassment

Sexual harassment in the workplace can range from improper comments or remarks, requests for sexual favors to keep your job and sexual advances to improper e-mails, jokes or any behavior that creates a hostile work environment for an employee. At Employee Advocates, LLC, our firm is experienced in the investigation and pursuit of claims involving sexual harassment against employers that fail to combat sexual harassment in the workplace. We also deal with claims involving retaliation for reporting wrongful or illegal conduct.

Reporting Sexual Harassment

If you are a victim of sexual harassment, it is important to report the wrongdoing to an employer. This may not be necessary if the sexual harassment is by a supervisor, director, or owner.  We will take the time to review your rights and options, including working toward a settlement agreement or filing a lawsuit with the company for failing to provide you with remedies and a sexual harassment-free workplace environment. If you think you have a claim or you have more questions about your rights, please feel free to call Attorney McDermott directly. Even if you had a prior relationship with the aggressor, you still have the right to be free from harassment in the workplace.

Attorney McDermott will work strategically to protect your rights, reputation and professional opportunities.
