It’s your legal right to work in a safe environment, free from sexual harassment. If you’ve been a victim of sexual harassment at your workplace, you want a team of experts on your side to right the wrong that has occurred. With more than 35 years representing survivors of sexual harassment cases, Gingras, Thomsen & Wachs has the knowledge and commitment you desire to get the outcome you deserve.
Gingras, Thomsen & Wachs attorneys specialize in three types of sexual harassment disputes:
- Quid pro quo harassment is when a supervisor or employer offers a raise, promotion, or other consideration in exchange for sexual favors. Alternatively, if a supervisor or employer has threatened your job unless you perform sexual acts, they have committed extortion.
- Hostile environment harassment occurs when verbal, visual, or physical sexual harassment happen on a regular basis. If there is a pattern of behavior that’s unwanted and interferes with your work, you can take legal action.
- If you report any type of harassment and your supervisor or employer punishes or threatens you for it, they have committed illegal retaliation. The law protects you in situations like this.
