Clayton Same-Sex Sexual Harassment Lawyer

Sexual harassment is not limited to male perpetrators and female victims. Sexual harassment can happen between two gay men, two lesbian women, or can even happen between two men and two women, where one makes jokes and comments in the presence of the other, and the other finds them intimidating and offensive.

You don't need to tolerate a hostile work environment. Federal law protects you from these kinds of behaviors and you cannot be terminated because you report these activities. If you work in an environment like this, you know how stressful and helpless you feel.

Don't give your rights away! If you, or someone you know, have been the victim of sexual harassment, or even if you are not sure what you are experiencing is sexual harassment, don't wonder — contact James J. Simeri for your initial consultation.
