Seattle Sexual Harassment Attorney
Sexual harassment in the workplace is a form of discrimination that violates both Federal and Washington State law. Unfortunately, it is one of the most widespread and detrimental types of discrimination, and remains common in both small and large companies.
Sexual harassment can involve unwelcome advances, an appeal for sexual favors, or other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature that impacts an individual’s employment, disrupts performance, or produces an intimidating, hostile or offensive work environment. Victims and harassers can be men or women. A harasser could be a supervisor, an agent of the employer, a co-worker, or non-employee. A victim does not have to be of the opposite sex. The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission provides further discussion of the types of behavior that constitute sexual harassment.
