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

“When I first retained Lisa, I felt like I was trusting her with my life.”

After I was injured, a family member who practices probate and trust law promised to help me find a great attorney to take my case. After doing some research, he called Lisa Esser-Weidenfeller and proceeded to have me do the same. Within a couple of weeks, I retained her for my…
