SEXUAL HARASSMENT

It is unlawful to harass a person (an applicant or employee) because of that person’s sex. Harassment can include “sexual harassment” or unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical harassment of a sexual nature.

Harassment does not have to be of a sexual nature, however, and can include offensive remarks about a person’s sex. For example, it is illegal to harass a woman by making offensive comments about women in general.

Both victim and the harasser can be either a woman or a man, and the victim and harasser can be the same sex.

Although the law doesn’t prohibit simple teasing, offhand comments, or isolated incidents that are not very serious, harassment is illegal when it is so frequent or severe that it creates a hostile or offensive work environment or when it results in an adverse employment decision (such as the victim being fired or demoted).

The harasser can be the victim’s supervisor, a supervisor in another area, a co-worker, or someone who is not an employee of the employer, such as a client or customer.

I feel that Ben is the best in this field, gave me a free consultation, went over the process, i went in there thinking that i was in a no win situation. He talked to explained to me everything and is doing a great job working through my case. I highly recommend Ben Yormak

Ben finds a path to victory and executes a plan. He gave me a chance to compete at my workplace when no one else would. He communicated fluidly despite a very long process that was out of his control. Mr Yormack is THE reason I could keep my job and grow my career.

Benjamin H. Yormak handled my case to my satisfaction. Ben is a lawyer you can trust. He kept me informed in “Black & White” terms exactly where we stood in my case. If I have any legal needs in the future I will have no hesitation to call Ben and get him on the case.
