North Las Vegas Sexual Harassment Attorney

Find the right Sexual Harassment attorney in North Las Vegas, NV

Sexual harassment is defined by 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 forms 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, North Las Vegas employers may be required to create 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, process 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 established agencies with the authority to investigate sexual harassment claims. These agencies conduct investigations at a given North Las Vegas 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 Nevada attorney help?

Without expertise in the applicable laws, both investigating and proving 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. So, hiring a North Las Vegas lawyer can be the surest way to file your sexual harassment claim within the deadlines specified by the state of Nevada.
