Appleton Sexual Harassment Attorney

Find the right Sexual Harassment attorney in Appleton, WI

The law of the state of Wisconsin defines sexual harassment as conduct that is unwelcome, and encompasses both physical and verbal acts. The forms 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 Wisconsin Law Prohibit Sexual Harassment?

First, employers who are located in Appleton can be required to formulate and visibly post company policies regulating sexual conduct. Matters covered by such policies should include contact information used by employees to report incidents, handling procedures for claims, and corrective measures (in the event that a claim turns out to be successful).

There are also federal and Wisconsin laws that have established agencies to handle sexual harassment claims. These agencies have authority to investigate a Appleton workplace for the sexual harassment conduct that is alleged in the complaints they receive. 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 Wisconsin attorney help?

If you do not have any expertise in the applicable laws, it may be difficult to investigate and show a claim involving sexual harassment. It's not uncommon for federal investigators to be too overworked to handle individual claims. With that in mind, you should consider speaking with an attorney in Appleton, as this may be the ideal way to ensure that your claim is filed before the deadlines set by the laws of Wisconsin.
