Bellevue Sexual Harassment Attorney

Find the right Sexual Harassment attorney in Bellevue, NE

Sexual harassment is defined by Nebraska law as unwelcome conduct that is of a sexual nature, which includes both verbal and physical actions. Some forms of sexual harassment that are most commonly committed by an employer include exchanging favoritism for sexual favors, the creation of a hostile work environment of a sexual nature, and sexual advances.

How does Nebraska Law Prohibit Sexual Harassment?

First, Bellevue employers may be required to create company policies concerning sexual conduct and post them for employees to see. Company polices might include such matters as contact information to be used in reporting sexual harassment, filing policies, and remedial measures in the event that a claim is proven to be true.

The laws of the state of Nebraska and federal law have both established agencies with the authority to investigate sexual harassment claims. These agencies conduct investigations at a given Bellevue work site in order to verify if a complaint that they have received is true or not. Employers are also barred under these laws from taking action in retaliation against an employee who has claimed sexual harassment, such as firing them or denying them a promotion.

How can a Nebraska attorney help?

It can be difficult to both investigate and show a sexual harassment claim without having any expertise in the applicable areas of law. The federal officers who investigate claims of sexual harassment are, unfortunately, frequently too busy to give much attention to any one claim. With that in mind, you should consider speaking with an attorney in Bellevue, as this may be the ideal way to ensure that your claim is filed before the deadlines set by the laws of Nebraska.
