Sexual harassment in the workplace is all too common. Federal law protects both men and women from enduring either workplace harassment or unwanted direct sexual advances. Many workers who are entitled to protection are often worried that they will be retaliated against if they file a complaint with the EEOC. Our Atlanta based employment lawyers aggressively defend the rights of sexual harassment victims and fight to either have the inappropriate behavior stopped or to have our clients properly compensated.

Georgia attorneys advocating on behalf of workers who have been sexually harassed on the job
Private, state, and U.S. Government workers are protected from sexual harassment in the workplace under federal law. It is the EEOC’s duty to enforce these rules and all violations must be made to the Atlanta office if other avenues of settling the complaint have been exhausted. If an employee is left with no choice but to take legal action then our attorneys are prepared to help. We routinely assist clients who have:
- Been fired from a job or denied a promotion after rejecting a supervisor’s sexual advances
- Been inappropriately touched, sexually assaulted, or been the subject of lewd comments in the workplace
- Been routinely subjected to sexist comments, jokes, coarse language, or unwanted emails
- Been routinely subjected to a supervisor or co-worker’s unwanted sexual advances
Our sexual harassment lawyers assist those who are facing such abuse – whether this means advocating for our client in mediation in order to cease the unwanted behavior or filing a complaint with the EEOC in order to win compensation. During your initial consultation we will listen to the facts of your case, ask you questions about action you have previously taken, and counsel you on your options.

Filing a complaint with the EEOC can be an intimidating experience. Many employees are unsure as to what type of details they should include in their complaint or are hesitant to be too graphic. Our attorneys will assist with this process. We will ensure that your complaint continues to move through the process and is investigated as necessary. If it is unfairly dismissed, we are prepared to file an appeal or even a federal lawsuit if necessary. We focus on this area of the law so that you may focus on the future.
