Hostile Environment Sexual Harassment Claims | More Than 30 Years of Experience | Millions in Settlements and Verdicts

Is your work environment a place where lewd jokes, bawdy pictures and overt sexual references are the norm? Is it an “old boy’s network” where sexual allusions permeate everything, to the extent that you dread going to work? Have you complained about the constant discussions and innuendos about sex, only to find yourself ostracized or ignored? Have you considered quitting your job, or even voluntary left your job because you couldn’t continue to face the incessant sexual remarks or inferences. You don’t have to simply put up with it – you have rights.

Under Title VII of the federal Civil Rights Act, as well as many state anti-discrimination laws, your employer may be responsible for allowing or condoning a hostile environment based on sex. Our team of aggressive, respected and successful lawyers can help you protect your rights.

Hostile Environment Sexual Harassment Claims

The law has long recognized the potential liability of an employer for sexual harassment when the employer condones, creates or allows a work environment where there are continual discussions of, or references or allusion to sex, sexual acts or topics. An employer can be responsible for the acts of co-employees, supervisors, customers, vendors or others who regularly visit the workplace. Among the activities that have been found by courts to create such a hostile environment are:

  • Allowing employees to have sexually suggestive or explicit pictures posted where other employees can see them
  • Permitting employees to tell dirty jokes or stories on the job, either verbally or through e-mail, printed word or other means
  • Condoning sexually suggestive remarks
  • Permitting frequent physical contact, even though it may not be sexual
