Sexual Harassment Lawyers Lake Charles
First, while this section is titled “sexual harassment” that is not the only form of harassment contemplated under the employment discrimination statutes. An individual can be harassed in violation of both Federal and State law based on their race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy), national origin, age (40 or older), disability, or genetic information.
However, we want to take this opportunity to specifically address the unacceptable issue of sexual harassment in our work places. Many victims feel that they cannot come forward for fear of reprisal or even worse they feel that they must “deal with it” to advance their careers. We encourage you not to fall prey to this temptation, these statutes are in place to protect you, and our Lake Charles sexual harassment lawyers are here to help you assert those rights.
Second, we wanted to briefly explain what it takes to prove or win a harassment case. Harassment becomes unlawful when:
- The offensive conduct becomes part of continued employment or
- The conduct is so severe or pervasive that it creates a hostile work environment.
Generally, the employer will be liable for the acts of a supervisor and may only escape liability by showing that they reasonably tried to correct/prevent harassing behavior and the employee unreasonably refused to take advantage of those opportunities.
