When Is an Employer Liable for Sexual Harassment?

An employer's liability for sexual harassment depends on the harasser's position in the company or workplace, and the kind of sexual harassment being alleged. So, even if you can prove that you experienced sexual harassment, it is possible that your employer may not be liable.

Do I Need a Lawyer Experienced with Sexual Harassment Cases?

Employment discrimination claims are complicated because procedural laws vary depending on where and when you file your claim. An employment lawyer can help you determine if you have a sexual harassment case, if your employer can be held liable and also help you with EEOC and FEPA filing deadlines. Also, because agencies will not get to your claim immediately, a lawyer can help you investigate and pursue alternative remedies. If you are being sued for employment discrimination, you should speak to a lawyer immediately.
