Knowledgeable attorneys present harassment cases with skill and care

Businesses must maintain sexual harassment free work environments.  This means workplaces free from offensive sexual comments or conduct.  The sexual nature of these behaviors can be implied or explicit, and verbal, physical or visual. Some common forms of sexual harassment are:

  • Quid pro quo — This type of sexual harassment often involves a supervisor who offers or withholds promotions or other benefits based on whether or not an employee will provide sexual favors.
  • Hostile work environment — Unwelcome actions that become a routine part of a workplace can create a hostile environment for employees. Repeated sexual advances, propositions and jokes may make employees feel unsafe and unvalued and limit their freedom and opportunities.
  • Sex-based harassment — Harassment does not need to be sexual in nature to be covered by Oregon’s sexual harassment laws. One example of sex-based harassment is a boss continually using offensive language about people of one sex to the point that it creates an intimidating work environment.

Though people usually think of sexual harassment as being between a male superior and a female subordinate, anyone can be the victim or the perpetrator of sexual harassment. We have represented clients across all forms of sexual harassment, male to female sexual harassment, female to male sexual harassment and same sex sexual harassment.

If you have experienced any type of workplace sexual harassment, you should immediately consult an experienced attorney.  Unfortunately, delay may cause you to lose your rights.

Experienced law firm represents victims of employer retaliation

It is illegal for employers to retaliate against their employees for reporting or opposing sexual harassment of supervisors, coworkers or even customers. If a boss tries to intimidate you into withdrawing your claims or staying silent, or if you are fired or passed up for a promotion because you came forward about sexual harassment, we can help to enforce your rights and seek justice.
