Howell Sexual Harassment Attorney

Find the right Sexual Harassment attorney in Howell, NJ

Sexual harassment is defined by New Jersey 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 New Jersey Law Prohibit Sexual Harassment?

First of all, employers in the city of Howell may be required to implement company policies with regards to sexual harassment and post these in a visible location so that employees may be informed. The policies should at least include: contact information for the reporting of sexual harassment incidents, an outline of policies to be followed in filing a claim, and the remedies available when a claim successfully proven.

Furthermore, federal and New Jersey laws create specific agencies which are responsible for handling sexual harassment cases. The agencies are given authority to investigate workplaces in Howell to determine if the incidents alleged in the complaints they receive are true. Additionally, under these laws, employers may not fire or retaliate against any employee who has alleged sexual harassment in a claim.

How can a New Jersey attorney help?

Without expertise in the applicable laws, both investigating and establishing a sexual harassment claim can be difficult. The federal officers who investigate claims of sexual harassment are, unfortunately, frequently too busy to give much attention to any one claim. Thus, hiring a Howell lawyer can be the surest way to file your sexual harassment claim within the deadlines specified by the state of New Jersey.
