Employment Law attorney, Roger Seat, can advise you on matters regarding sexual harassment. Sexual harassment by an employer against an employee is employment discrimination which violates federal and state laws. There are two forms of sexual harassment: hostile work environment and quid pro quo. A person is subjected to a hostile work environment when the workplace contains comments and conduct sexual in nature that are sufficiently pervasive or severe to change the conditions or terms of employee’s work environment. A person experiences quid pro quo harassment when a supervisor or co-worker promises a benefit in exchange for sexual favors or punishes an employee who refuses sexual advances.
If you have been subjected to sexual harassment at work, your civil rights have been violated and the Law Office of Roger Seat LLC can help you defend your civil rights. It is important to remember that sexual harassment claims are subject to rigid time limits and they normally must be filed within either 180 days or 300 days of the alleged incident.
