Resolving Sexual Harassment Claims Confidentially And Professionally
John Davis and his team have represented hundreds of victims of workplace sexual harassment. In fact, sexual harassment is the law firm’s biggest and busiest practice area. Davis & Davis, P.C., has recovered millions of dollars for their clients.
In this day and age, it is shocking that sexual harassment is still so prevalent. Even more shocking – and disheartening – is that the perpetrators of sexual harassment are typically in long-term marriages. While we do not get into the psychology of sexual harassment, we can help our clients by empowering them, and taking control over the situation.
In fact, almost all of our clients consider the money to be secondary. Our clients’ primary focus is to regain control of their lives and to repair the damage to their self-esteem. John Davis and his team work hard to ensure that their clients’ needs are met, both the monetary needs and nonmonetary desires.
What Is Considered Sexual Harassment Under The Law?
Sexual harassment does not have to include physical touching or sexual assault. Sexual harassment is often verbal and can be obvious, such as sending photographs with nudity or making pornographic comments. But sexual harassment can also include less obvious examples, such as a supervisor or co-worker who makes “jokes” that are sexual and offensive. If your workplace has become a hostile environment based upon sexual “jokes,” comments or conduct, Davis & Davis, P.C., wants the opportunity to help you.
Some people assume that the law only protects opposite-sex harassment, such as a man sexually harassing a woman. This is simply not true. In fact, there has been a steady increase in the amount of same-sex sexual harassment claims. For example, if a male supervisor “teases” and “jokes” with a male subordinate that he is homosexual, that individual can bring a claim for sexual harassment regardless of his sexual orientation. Sexual harassment is defined as verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature that is unwelcome and has the purpose or effect of creating a hostile work environment, and it interferes with the employee’s ability to perform his or her job.
