Find the right Sexual Harassment attorney in Boulder City, NV

Sexual harassment is defined under Nevada law as unwelcome conduct that is of a sexual nature, which includes both verbal and physical actions. Employers are most often involved in the following types of sexual harassment acts: demanding sexual favors in exchange for promotions, creating a sexually offensive work environment, and making sexual advances.

How does Nevada Law Prohibit Sexual Harassment?

First, Boulder City employers may be required to establish company policies concerning sexual conduct and post them for employees to see. Such policies should include items such as contact information for reporting harassment incidents, procedures for filing claims, and any corrective or preventative measures should a claim be proven.

There are also agencies which are appointed by federal and Nevada law for the specific purpose of handling sexual harassment cases. Such agencies have the authority to investigate work sites to determine if the complaints they receive in Boulder City are true. Employers are also prohibited 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 Nevada attorney help?

Investigating and proving a sexual harassment claim might be difficult without consulting someone with expertise in the relevant laws. It's fairly common for federal officials who investigate these matters to be overworked. With that in mind, you should consider speaking with an attorney in Boulder City, as this might be the best way to ensure that your claim is filed before the deadlines set by the laws of Nevada.
