Alabama Sexual Harassment Attorney
Adam M. Porter
A Knowledgeable Birmingham Workplace Harassment Lawyer
Working in a hostile work environment can make performing daily job activities unmanageable. There are a number of state and federal laws that prevent work related sexual harassment, racial harassment, and harassment related to age or disability. Nonetheless, thousand of people in Alabama face harassment at work every day.
Not only is harassment at work illegal, it is demeaning and can have a significant impact on an employee’s effectiveness at work, as well as impact family life outside of work.
Typically there are two types of workplace harassment:
A hostile work environment - where the employee is subjected to racial or sexual harassment that is severe or pervasive.
Quid Pro Quo Sexual Harassment - where a sexual favor is the basis for hiring, a promotion, or a pay raise.
As an Alabama racial and sexual harassment lawyer, I take great satisfaction in helping people obtain optimal compensation in harassment claims
Birmingham, Alabama Sexual Harassment Lawyer
Sexual harassment is the most pervasive form of workplace harassment, followed closely by racial harassment. If you have endured harassment in the workplace it is important to report that harassment according to the guidelines outlined in your company policy. It is difficult to collect damages in Alabama sexual harassment cases without proof that the harassment was reported to the company. The exception to this is if there is no reporting procedure and the employer had constructive notice of the harassment. Meaning that the racial or sexual harassment was so pervasive that managers had to know it was occurring.
If you have been sexually harassed or been harassed due to your race, age, or disability, and have quit your job, you may still have a wrongful termination claim. A constructive discharge is when you leave a job due to adverse work conditions that would compel any reasonable person to leave. This is a common circumstance in cases involving sexual harassment.
