Are You a Victim of Sexual Harassment?

Sexual harassment includes unwelcomed comments, touching, sexual advances, and requests for sexual favors. Sexual harassment does not have to be sexual in nature. Even conduct that makes someone uncomfortable can be harassment. This type of harassment often occurs in the workplace, creating a hostile or offensive environment and adversely affecting the victim’s work performance.

Stopping Sexual Harassment

You should report the conduct to your employer and file a claim with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. It is also to your advantage to consult with a qualified Eugene attorney experienced in this area of law when the offensive conduct begins. The attorney can sue for emotional distress, pain and suffering, and mental anguish.

Top Questions to Ask When Hiring an Attorney

  • How many years have you been practicing law? How long have you practiced law in the local area?
  • How many cases similar to mine have you handled in the past?
  • What is the likely outcome for my case?

In legal practice, experience matters. An experienced attorney will likely have handled issues similar to yours many, many times. Therefore, after listening to your situation, the attorney should have a reasonable idea of the time line for a case like yours and the likely resolution.

The Importance of a Good Consultation

The goal of an initial consultation is to find an attorney you are comfortable working with and someone who can help you understand your options under the law. Seek to understand the relevant legal experience the attorney brings to your case. While it is not realistic to expect an attorney to resolve your legal issue during an initial consultation, you should gain a level of comfort with his/her ability to do so. A good consultation can clarify issues, raise pertinent questions and considerations for your case, and help you make an informed decision towards resolving your legal issue.

Tips on Hiring an Experienced Lawyer with Sexual Harassment Cases

The more experienced a lawyer is in legal practice, the more likely he/she will be able to bring about a successful resolution to your issue. Since experience matters, lawyers who’ve been practicing law for many years (with a successful track record) tend to be in high demand. You should look for information about a lawyer’s experience and ask questions during the initial meeting. It’s a very good idea to ask the lawyer how many years he/she has been practicing law and the expected outcome of your case.
