Sometimes doctors and dentists sexually harass nurses or technicians.
Even professionals – like lawyers, physicians, and dentists – are capable of sexual harassment. In fact, sometimes the power differential in those professions between the professionals and their staff helps create an environment ripe for sexual harassment – in spite of the professionals’ high education.
Sexual harassment – including comments, groping, assault, touching, and requests for sexual favors – is always wrong. And illegal – no matter who’s doing it.
You don’t have to be a victim – state and federal law protect nurses from sexual harassment at work.
Sexual harassment laws – including the Minnesota Human Rights Act and Title VII – don’t distinguish between doctors, lawyers, or anyone else: sexual harassment is illegal no matter how highly educated the perpetrator.
Contact our Minneapolis Sexual Harassment Lawyers Today for a Free Consultation.
If you’re a nurse, medical technician, lab technician, or dental hygienist who’s been sexually harassed by a doctor or dentist, call us today for a free consultation.
The process for a free consultation with our employment lawyers is pretty simple. First, call our firm. You’ll talk to a clerk for about 5-10 minutes. They’ll get some basic information about you and your case.
About 3 or 4 hours later, you’ll get a call from us. If you’ve got a case that’s a little outside our wheelhouse, then we’ll will call you and give you a referral for an attorney that we think is better suited to handle your case. Our number one goal is to make sure you get the best representation possible for your particular matter – if that’s not us, we’ll tell you immediately and get you to someone else that we trust.
If we think that we can help you, then someone will call you and set an appointment for you to talk to one of our employment lawyers. We’ll call you at time that works for you and discuss your case and give you our honest assessment of its strengths, weaknesses, and value. We’ll then set a time where you can come to our office and meet your employment lawyer personally – at that time, we’ll discuss your case in more detail, sign a contingency fee retainer agreement, and talk about the process of moving forward with your case.
When you come in to meet your employment lawyer, please bring all relevant documents that you want us to look at, including: pay-stubs personnel file (if you have it) employment handbook (if you have it) any letters from your employer, including your termination letter any text messages or emails that you think are important and any other documents that you think might be helpful.
