You Don’t Have To Tolerate Sexual Harassment On The Job
Sexual harassment cases often involve more than unwanted advances or objectionable comments about one’s physical features or clothes. Victims can be denied promotions or fair work conditions for refusing to accept the harassment in the “right” spirit. They can be pressured into withdrawing complaints, or suffer retaliation for bringing intolerable conditions to the attention of a supervisor or human resources manager. In some cases, the victim is even threatened with physical violence.
We can advise you about your rights, how to document and prove the facts necessary to support your claim, and even help you negotiate a severance package if your work environment is no longer tolerable.
If you have been subjected to sexually hostile conditions in the workplace, required to accommodate unwanted advances, touching, or comments, or if you’ve experienced retaliation for reporting sexual harassment on the job, contact us, The Grubb Law Group.

- Writing or distributing suggestive letters or notes
- Inappropriately touching another co-worker
