Are You Experiencing Sexual Harassment at Work?
Sexual harassment can take many forms, but it boils down to violating a person’s right to be safe and comfortable at work. If you are working in a hostile environment because of sexual harassment, contact Halunen Law for advice from an experienced lawyer.
Sexual harassment is is a form of sex discrimination and is a civil rights violation. It can range from verbal comments to physical touching or assault. While many people believe it is perpetrated by male bosses against female subordinates, sexual harassment can occur between all combinations of gender — male on female, male on male, female on male or female on female — and it can happen in many work environments and between co-workers in all types of relationships.

We have advised and represented many employees struggling with things like:
- Unwanted sexual advances or touching
- Offensive joking, comments, emails or other unwanted communication
