Louisville, Kentucky Attorneys
Sexual Harassment and Assault
Sexual harassment is a disturbingly common problem. While this is not a surprise in the era of #metoo, 45 percent of complains fielded by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) are sex-based, and at least 25 percent of women have been harassed in the workplace. Not only that, but simply reporting harassment results in retaliation 75 percent of the time, which means you cannot expect your employers to do the right thing when faced with a harassment claim. Sexual harassment and assault are a violation of your personal autonomy and rights, regardless of your gender, and you have every right to seek compensation and hold the perpetrators accountable for their actions.
