Terminated after reporting sexual harassment? April 29, 2014

Sexual Harassment at workFirst, understand that you did the right thing. You were correct to complain because sexual harassment at work is illegal. Under the law, you also had a duty to complain so that the employer could investigate and hopefully put an end to the sexual harassment. Unfortunately, your employer fired you instead. Now it’s time to contact an experienced employment lawyer to help you. Just as workplace sexual harassment is illegal, it is also illegal to fire someone because they have reported sexual harassment. The law calls that retaliation, and employees have legal protections against retaliation by their employers. You may be entitled to past and future lost wages, damages for emotional distress, punitive damages and your attorney fees. Don’t delay because there is a deadline to take action and if you miss it, it may not be possible to pursue your claims.
