Springfield Sexual Harassment Lawyer
Missouri Workplace Harassment Attorney
Under federal law, sexual harassment in the workplace is a form of illegal gender discrimination that violates the victim's civil rights. If you are experiencing harassment of any kind at work or find yourself working in a hostile work environment because of your gender or sexual orientation, or because you tried to fight back, you are entitled to use the courts to protect yourself and seek full and fair compensation.

Do You Have a Case and What Can You Do About It?
If you are suffering the indignity of sexual harassment or discrimination on the job, take notes of every incident you encounter. Don't put up with abuse. Take your notes to your supervisor and discuss the issue with your human resources department. In most cases of sexual harassment, it is often a single supervisor or co-worker, rather than a company policy of violating your rights. If the harassment continues, or you experience retaliation, talk to an experienced employment lawyer on our team before making any decisions to quit. If you have already left your job, we can help you recover compensation for lost earnings and punitive damages. Generally, your attorneys fees will be added to the final compensation for damages.
