Steele Cooper Law Handles Workplace Sexual Harassment Cases With Compassion
Sexually Harassed At Work?
Unfortunately, sexual harassment at work is extremely common. So much so that most people write it off as part of the job—something you have to live with. Fortunately, things are changing for the better. And the law is on your side.
You do not have to endure comments about your body, unwanted touching, or sexual advances. You do not have to accept being treated as a sex object instead of a colleague.
In too many cases, women are expected to laugh it off or be a “good sport.”
Nothing about this is ok.
It does not have to be this way. Steele Cooper Law understands the harm done by situations like these. We’re here to listen, to believe you, to take action for you–and to do so in a compassionate and thoughtful way.
