What To Do In A Sexual Harassment Case
If you are the victim of sexual harassment, the first step you should take is contacting an attorney like one at Employment Law Office of John H. Haskin & Associates, LLC. Our Indianapolis-based lawyers can answer all of your questions and make sure your claim is handled the right way, so that you get the justice you deserve.
One reason why our firm is recognized as one of Indiana’s top employment law firms is that we stay up to date on the latest legal developments and court decisions. We know how hard it is to successfully prove a sexual harassment case, and we know what it takes to be successful.
Proving A Sexual Harassment Claim Is Complicated. Call Us Quickly.
Our attorneys can walk you through the process. In most cases you will first find out what your employee handbook says about reporting sexual harassment and follow those instructions first.
If you report the harassment correctly and your employer does nothing or retaliates against you — by firing you, changing your job duties, discriminating against you, etc. — then you will have grounds for a case.
Gathering evidence will strengthen your claims. Save all electronic communication regarding the harassment and gather witness statements quickly. If a co-worker witnessed any inappropriate behavior, have him or her write down what he or she saw, sign and date it, and bring it with you to your consultation.
We understand what an emotional time this is for you, but it is important that you do everything correctly so that you strengthen your chance of a successful outcome. We can protect you and make sure you are doing everything you are supposed to. Contact us online or call 317-426-6995 today to speak to a lawyer who is ready to fight on your behalf.
