Renton Sexual Harassment Attorney

Find the right Sexual Harassment attorney in Renton, WA

The law of the state of Washington defines sexual harassment as conduct that is unwelcome, and encompasses both physical and verbal actions. The types of sexual harassment that are most common when done by an employer are sexual advances, the exchange of workplace favoritism for sexual favors, and the creation of a hostile work environment that is overly sexual.

How does Washington Law Prohibit Sexual Harassment?

First, employers who are located in Renton can be required to establish and visibly post company policies regulating sexual conduct. 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 Washington and federal law have both created agencies with the authority to investigate sexual harassment claims. These agencies conduct investigations at a given Renton 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 Washington 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. Because of this, working with a Renton attorney might be the best way to make sure that your claim is processed in a timely manner.
