Eligible Sexual Harassment Cases
Sexual Harassment includes any unwanted, sexually motivated activity, directed toward an individual.
When this harassment happens in a workplace, church, sports team, camp or other structured organization, often we can help. Organizations such as those mentioned previously, are expected to provide a safe environment for it’s employees and members. When the victim of sexual harassment has taken appropriate action(s) to report the inappropriate behavior, and the organization fails to act swiftly and appropriately, the organization can be held liable for fostering an environment that is unsafe.
