Sexual harassment is a violation of both Arizona law and federal law. Sexual harassment can include pervasive comments, lewd or suggestive language or actions, inappropriate and unwelcome sexual advances, and groping and sexual assault. Sexual harassment can create a hostile work environment or lead to adverse employment actions.
We have represented numerous individuals who suffered an adverse employment action, including firing or demotion, because they refused to accept the unwelcome sexual advances of an employer or supervisor. We also have represented the victims of sexual assault or contact against employers who either perpetrated the actions or knowingly allowed them to occur during the workplace.
