Experienced Colorado Sexual Harassment Attorney Representing Workers
Not only is sexual harassment unacceptable in any Colorado workplace but is also against the law. You have the legal right to financial recovery if you have experienced sexual harassment. But doing so can be a complicated process. Unless you retain experienced legal assistance, your chances of success are low, no matter how much evidence you have.
Attorney Wes McConnell of McConnell Law, PC, is passionate about helping victims of sexual harassment in the Colorado Springs area seek justice against both their harasser and their employer that failed to protect them. He has extensive experience in this area of employment law, having represented workers in all fields, including federal employees and contractors.
The Two Types Of Sexual Harassment In Colorado Law
There are two categories of sexual harassment. One is called quid quo pro harassment because it involves your boss, manager or supervisor requesting sexual favors in exchange for a benefit or threatening to fire or punish you if you refuse. The other is known as creating a toxic work environment that makes it impossible for you to do your job. Elements of a toxic work environment often include:
- Unwanted touching or asking you for a date
- Sexually suggestive jokes
- Comments about your body or your clothing
- Posting sexually inappropriate photos or notes where you cannot avoid seeing them
Most companies have policies in place for reporting and dealing with sexual harassment claims. Unfortunately, no matter what they promise their workforce, some employers refuse to take credible reports of harassment seriously. They may even retaliate against you by demoting or outright firing you. We can help you pursue compensation for illegal retaliation.
