Standing Up for Victims of Sexual Harassment
State and federal laws protect employees against sexual discrimination or harassment. Despite those protections, it can be difficult to speak out against sexual discrimination or harassment.
If you are a victim, you have options. One of them is to contact Castle Law Office for a free and confidential consultation. An experienced sexual harassment/discrimination lawyer can put knowledge and resources to work so you get the justice you deserve. Don't let sexual harassment or discrimination derail your career. Tell them you mean business.
The Missouri Human Rights Act protects employees from sexual discrimination in "regard to hiring, termination, promotion, compensation, job training or any other term condition, or privilege of employment." On the federal level, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) enforces the federal employment discrimination laws. Our firm can help you pursue the best course of action if you or a loved one was a victim of sexual discrimination or harassment. This may include filing a claim with the EEOC, the Missouri Commission on Human Rights (MCHR) or the Kansas Human Rights Commission (KHRC).Examples of Sexual Discrimination or Harassment
Examples of sexual harassment at work include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Unwelcome sexual advances or sexual comments
- Requests for sexual favors
- Inappropriate touching of a person's clothing or body
- Inappropriate or hostile comments shared through a company's email or other internal electronic communication system
Some types of sexual discrimination may come in the form of gender-based harassment, which may include epithets, slurs and negative stereotyping of men or women, directed at a female or male employee. We also handle gender discrimination cases involving pregnancy discrimination, unequal pay or retaliation for speaking out or taking action against discrimination.
If you or a loved one has endured sexual discrimination or harassment in the workplace, contact Castle Law Office. An experienced personal injury attorney can discuss your legal options. Too much is at stake to pursue a claim alone or with the wrong attorney.
