Detroit Sexual Harassment Lawyers

Sexual harassment in the workplace is against the law, yet it remains a serious problem, especially for women.

Sexual harassment makes the workplace environment uncomfortable, instilling fear and panic in an individual about going to work each day. No one should be subjected to demeaning and sexual remarks or actions while on the job. That’s why you need to contact a Sommers Schwartz attorney.

Sexual Harassment & Its Impact on the Workplace

While it may be considered just “joking around” to some, the emotional and mental effects of sexual harassment can be devastating for the person subjected to such remarks or advances.

There are primarily two forms of illegal sexual harassment claims – hostile work environment and quid pro quo. A hostile work environment claim often involves sexual innuendoes, comments, or actions by another employee or manager that make the work environment untenable to the targeted employee. Quid pro quo sexual harassment claims – meaning “you do this for me and I’ll do that for you” – involve requests to trade sexual favors for employment opportunities including promotions, advancements, or compensation.

Protecting Your Legal Rights in a Sexual Harassment Lawsuit

You can’t always count on your employer to do the right thing, and taking the situation into your own hands can and frequently does do more harm than good. Pursuing a sexual harassment claim can be complicated, and it’s essential that you follow the policies and procedures relating to sexual harassment complaints established by your employer. If the claim is not filed properly, the entire case may be jeopardized and get lost in the courts. By following the complaint procedures, documenting all instances of sexual harassment and ensuring that you have notified your employer, it will be easier to seek damages for the harassment and suffering you have experienced.

If you have been a victim of sexual harassment while at work, we urge you to contact a Sommers Schwartz employment lawyer today

I’m speechless!

I’m speechless! I never expected to receive the settlement that you guys worked so hard for! Thank you so much!

Mr. Watkins showed he was a great lawyer.

Mr. Watkins showed he was a great lawyer by the way he handled the case. He always kept me informed and the entire team was professional. I would highly recommend him and the firm.

For five and one-half years you never tossed in the towel.

The very fact that you maintained and were able to share a belief in my unique circumstances was remarkable along with your stellar professionalism. You delivered and you have my deepest appreciation for your efforts.

I was very impressed with you throughout the trial.

That was the first time I had been a juror, and it was an interesting experience. I was very impressed with you throughout the trial, and got the feeling that you really enjoy your career.

Kenneth Watkins is very knowledgeable.

Being a healthcare professor myself, I was impressed to know that he was so well read and knew the medical jargon (terminology) when evaluating individual cases. I found him to be very professional, credible, and personable.

They are an awesome team and I would recommend them and their firm to anyone.

I contacted Sommers Schwartz to join a class action suit. Kevin Stoops and his assistant Veronica Stewart took my case and walked me through all the documents that I had to sign, explained everything to me, and won my case!

I’m so appreciative.

You and your team handled everything so professionally and have been so personable and compassionate. In particular, your paralegal was wonderful to me, showed me and others such empathy, and made everything so smooth. I will be happy to recommend your firm to anyone who needs legal help.

You are outstanding!!!

I was so impressed with your knowledge of the law and the way you were able to step back and look at all the options while explaining it to me in layman terms. I would recommend you to anyone who is or has been a victim of workplace harassment, discrimination or any other employment issue.

Our attorney was tough, very professional, and knew his stuff!

Our case was very difficult and challenging and therefore was very time-consuming. Each step of the way, Matt explained what was going on and what I could expect, and he always kept in contact through emails or phone calls. Matt is sincere, kind, and compassionate – he has become more than just our attorney. He is more like family!
