Compassionate Representation For Victims Of Sexual Harassment
No one should ever have to endure sexual harassment. If it happens in the workplace, a victim may feel like they cannot do anything about it without risking their current job or future career prospects. Harassment victims need to know that they have rights and that an experienced employment law attorney can protect them.
My name is Rod Bridgers of the Law Office of Rod Bridgers, LLLC, and I am an employment law attorney dedicated to helping the Hawaii community. I pride myself on being the lawyer Hawaii comes to for help. With more than 40 years of experience, I am ready to address your sexual harassment claims and help you seek justice.
Justice After Any Form Of Harassment
Sexual harassment can occur in many forms, even without any physical interaction. Examples of sexual harassment include:
- Requests for sexual favors in exchange for workplace benefits (quid pro quo)
- Unwanted remarks about your person or appearance
- Offensive/inappropriate remarks about your gender (gender discrimination)
- Inappropriate emails or messages
- Offensive jokes (hostile work environment)
- Unwanted touching or sexual advances
- Posting pornography or sexually explicit imagery
- Repeated requests for a date or sexual favors
Even if employees are no longer working face-to-face in an office environment, sexual harassment can still occur virtually through online meetings, emails or webchats.
If you suspect that someone has sexually harassed you, consult an attorney right away. The guidance that an experienced attorney can provide can help you settle your legal matter quickly and efficiently. While it is usually preferable to resolve workplace issues through negotiations, I am more than prepared to defend my clients with my comprehensive litigation skills.
Do Not Ignore Your Harassment
You may think that ignoring what happened is the best thing to do, but without any action on your part, it only allows harassment to continue. Even if you take your case to your company’s human resources department, that doesn’t guarantee justice will be served. Let me help you make it clear that sexual harassment is not tolerated in your workplace.
