What is Sexual Harassment?

The United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (“EEOC”) defines sexual harassment as unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature constitute sexual harassment when this conduct explicitly or implicitly affects an individual’s employment, unreasonably interferes with an individual’s work performance, or creates an intimidating, hostile, or offensive work environment.

The Law Offices of Helmer & Friedman LLP are dedicated to ending sexual harassment in the workplace. In addition to assisting people who have been sexually harassed by their current and/or former employer, we counsel employers on how to prevent sexual harassment. In fact, we literally wrote The Book on litigating harassment and discrimination cases.
