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

My wife and I wanted to send you our deepest gratitude for your work on our family’s behalf

Even though it doesn’t change our daughter’s condition, it will make going through some of the challenges she will face less burdensome from a financial perspective. We appreciate your professionalism, Rick Groffsky – you are truly a master of your craft.

I couldn’t have asked for better representation and counsel.

Thank you to Tad for representing me on my severance agreement. The entire negotiation was handled efficiently and in an extremely professional manner. I also really appreciated that Tad was transparent about the process and timelines, as well as that he was willing to discuss strategy with me.

Matt Turner was a guiding light through my lawsuit.

Going through the legal process was foreign and nerve-racking for me but I was able to garner confidence from my attorney. I am fully confident he was the key factor in the success of my outcome.

Your ability, understanding, and compassion are truly remarkable, Rob Sickels.

Your ability, understanding, compassion and at time dispassionate way of speaking for those who no longer can speak for themselves are truly remarkable.

I will be happy to recommend Sommers Schwartz to anyone who needs legal help.

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.

Thank you for looking out for me, and having my back.

Thank you, Arvin Pearlman, for trying to win. Thank you for putting in as much time as you did. Thank you for being patient with me. You made a big impression on me.

Do you want the best? Hire Matt Curtis. I guarantee you will not be disappointed.

I was referred to Matt Curtis by an attorney’s office in the city where I live. From the first telephone conversation with Matt and his team, I felt confident I didn’t need to look any further for an attorney.
