Contact Leeds Brown Law If You’ve Been Exposed To Sexual Harassment
Since our inception three decades ago, we at Leeds Brown Law have remained steadfast in our mission to seek justice for victims of work-related sexual harassment. Over the years, we’ve diversified our understandings and currently offer everything from employment to sexual assault representation.
Though sexual harassment can be hard to discern at times, sexual imposition is the most blatant form of sexual misconduct. When co-workers or employers display such flagrant violations of gender equality, they must be held legally accountable. If you’ve been subjected to these aggressive acts of sexual assault, call us for your free case evaluation.
Sexual Imposition Explained
Unlike most instances of sexual harassment, sexual imposition is easy to detect. Perpetrators don’t feel the need to disguise their behavior because they feel wholly superior to the victim. These sexual advances are forceful, often making the victim feel helpless. When the harasser feels as though they have the upper hand, they continue to display patterns of misconduct in the hopes of solidifying their false sense of seniority.
In most cases, this results in a hostile work environment. In other words, the victim’s work is compromised because of unwelcome sexual interferences. When these behaviors persist, they can lead to irreparable emotional damage. To further enlighten you, here are some prime examples of this type of illegal behavior.
- Sexual remarks
- Sexual teasing
- Explicit flirting
- Physical contact
- Sharing lewd content via email or text
If you’ve been on the receiving end of these sexual advances, allow us to help. We’re committed to providing you with quality representation that’ll lead to your deserved compensation. Allowing these issues to fester will only compound shame and regret. Contact us today to discuss your next steps.
Finding Solace In Legal Protection
It’s not uncommon for victims of sexual assault to feel defenseless. Fortunately, there are federal and state laws in place that protect you. Most notably, Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits gender discrimination and sexual harassment in all 50 states. So long as the company you work for employs more than 15 people, you can file a sexual harassment claim against your harasser.
The New York Human Rights Law is in keeping with this same ruling. In essence, this state law maintains that sexual misconduct is in direct violation of gender equality laws. This legislation takes a stand against enduring instances of bigotry based on sex. At Leeds Brown Law, we have extensive insight into both of these laws. With that said, you’re promised nothing less than top-tier representation from well-informed attorneys.
