Claims for sexual and other forms of harassment can run the gamut – from a seemingly harmless comment, to offensive and inappropriate comments or gestures, to unwelcome physical contact and even sexual assault. They can not only be costly, but also, ruin the reputation of those accused. This is why it is imperative that employers take action to ensure their workplace is free from any form of harassment; that effective policies and procedures are in place; that employees and supervisors are trained; and that the resources and expertise are available in the event of a report of harassment or a claim alleging a violation of Title VII or a state law prohibiting harassment on the basis of sex, race, disability, etc.
The attorneys at Wessels Sherman Joerg Liszka Laverty Seneczko P.C. routinely counsel and defend employers against allegations of sexual harassment, providing a wide range of services, from policy development, employee and supervisory training, investigation of harassement complaints, counsel and the defense of claims.
