 Sexual Harassment in the Work Place - let Lori Watson help
Sexual Abuse on the job and in the workplace.  


On the job sexual harassment is not a recent problem, but it often goes unreported.  

Many employees don’t know that they have rights under the law or they are afraid that their employer will retaliate against them if they report sexual harassment. If you were subjected to unwanted sexual advances at work you have rights under the law to recover for the on – the –job discrimination. Also your employer can be held accountable if he fires you in retaliation for reporting the harassment.


In order to pursue your rights to file a civil suit against your employer, usually you must first file an EECO or similar state related charge within the time frame prescribed by the law, and obtain a right to sue letter.
Victims of work place sexual harassment may recover damages in the form of future pecuniary losses, emotional pain and suffering, inconvenience, mental anguish, loss of enjoyment of life, and other nonpecuniary losses. Also a victim may be able to recover punitive damages if they can demonstrate that an employer acted with malice or callous indifference.
