Have you been sexually harassed at work?
Does your supervisor make inappropriate comments about your body or clothes?
Does your employer refuse to do anything about the sexual harassment, even though you’ve told the harasser to stop?
Are you afraid to report the harassment because you think that your employer may fire you in retaliation for your report?
Madia Law Represents Victims of Sexual Harassment
If you answered “yes” to any one of the above questions, Madia Law can help. We represent sexual harassment victims across the States of Minnesota and Wisconsin against some of the largest employers in the country.
Sexual harassment includes inappropriate comments or touching – that’s called a hostile work environment. It can also include unwanted sexual advances. Minnesota, Wisconsin, and federal anti-discrimination statutes prevent hostile work environment type sexual harassment. You have the right to come to work and do your job without fear of being sexually harassed by your managers, supervisors, co-workers, or peers.
Sexual harassment also occurs when managers or supervisors offer promotions, raises, or other work benefits in exchange for sexual favors. This is called quid pro quo – or something for something – sexual harassment discrimination. Minnesota and federal laws guarantee that you have the right to do your job without propositions for sexual favors by your supervisors.
You should also know that you are protected from retaliation by your employer if you report sexual harassment. It is illegal under state and federal statutes for an employer to terminate you or otherwise change the conditions of your employment because of your decision to report sexual harassment.
