Sexual Harassment

Washington, D.C., Sexual Harassment Lawyer

Sexual harassment in the workplace can take many forms, ranging from sexually explicit language to requests for sexual favors by a boss or employer. Too often, sexual harassment in the workplace goes unrecognized or ignored because the victim fears negative treatment or retaliation. If you have been victimized by sexual harassment in the workplace, you have rights. Our attorneys at Alan Lescht and Associates, P.C. have over 20 years of experience in sexual harassment cases.

What if I suffer harassment from a co-worker?

Sexual harassment can involve behavior by your employer or another employee. If your employer has reason to know that you have been the victim of unwelcome sexual advances or inappropriate behavior from a fellow employee, they are required to take immediate action to protect you. Our attorneys will counsel you on how to handle sexual harassment in the workplace and how to document any negative treatment you face.

How do you proceed if you are being victimized at work?

An important element of sexual harassment claims is how you handle the treatment.

We will work on a full investigation, contact witnesses, identify any patterns of harassment, and ensure that we have a proper foundation of evidence before taking legal action against your employer.
