Defining Sexual Harassment
Sexual harassment, whether directed at one person or many, is illegal. Unfortunately, though, harassing behavior persists in workplaces across West Virginia — in large corporations and small businesses alike, in offices, retail stores, mines and on the shop floor.
If you have been the victim of sexual harassment, remember that you do not have to tolerate that type of behavior. Federal and West Virginia state laws provide remedies to stop this behavior and hold the perpetrators responsible. You may also be entitled to compensation for past and future wages, benefits, emotional suffering and, in some cases, punitive damages.
Our law firm has extensive experience in workplace harassment, employment law, employee benefit and personal injury cases. We work hard to obtain compensation and justice for you if you have been the victim of sexual harassment.
