Sexual Harassment Overview
Any allegation of sexual harassment is a serious concern.

What is Sexual Harassment?
Sexual harassment is a type of employment or workplace discrimination that is based on verbal or physical abuse of a sexual nature.

If you have been the victim of sexual harassment, an experienced employment law attorney can help you understand your rights and how to the protect them.
What Can an Employee Do About Sexual Harassment?
A victim of sexual harassment may be told that there is nothing that he or she can do about the situation, and, as a result, many feel powerless.

An attorney with experience in sexual harassment cases can help you know your rights.
