Las Vegas Sexual Harassment Attorney

Find the right Sexual Harassment attorney in Las Vegas, 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 frequently 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, Las Vegas employers may be required to formulate 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.

The laws of the state of Nevada and federal law have both appointed agencies with the authority to investigate sexual harassment claims. These agencies conduct investigations at a given Las Vegas work site in order to verify if a complaint that they have received is true or not. Additionally, under these laws, employers may not fire or retaliate against any employee who has alleged sexual harassment in a claim.

How can a Nevada attorney help?

Investigating and establishing a sexual harassment claim might be difficult without consulting someone with expertise in the relevant laws. The federal agencies that handle initial claims of sexual harassment are often understaffed and overworked. Therefore, hiring an attorney in Las Vegas can be the safest way to file your claim within the deadlines for sexual harassment claims that Nevada has defined.
