Detroit Federal Employee Sexual Harassment Attorneys
In 1964, sexual harassment in the private and public workplaces became illegal following the passage of the Civil Rights Act. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) established regulations and guidelines to prevent sexual harassment at work. Under these federal laws, victims can sue for damages.
If you have suffered sexual harassment in a federal workplace in Michigan, you have rights. Call Akeel & Valentine, PLC, at 248-918-4542 for a consultation. We serve clients throughout Michigan from offices in Dearborn and Troy.
You Can End The Pattern Of Sexual Harassment
Sexual harassment occurs when undesired sexual conduct occurs that promotes a hostile or uncomfortable workplace. If you are a victim of offers of sexual favors and other inappropriate acts, you have options to end the harassment and have the harasser punished. Directly demanding an end to sexual harassment to the accuser may fall on deaf ears. Communicating the acts to a human resources official or supervisor can fall short as well.
Documentation of these attempts to end the misconduct is paramount.
When internal efforts fail — and they often do — the attorneys at Akeel & Valentine, PLC, get to work in pursuing a sexual harassment claim to the EEOC or a lawsuit against the individual or federal employer. Throughout the pursuit of justice, we will remain at your side until justice is served.
Akeel & Valentine, PLC, maintains a law firm small enough to provide personalized and individualized legal advocacy at affordable rates while having a varied practice to meet the needs of Michigan residents from all walks of life. Many Metro Detroit-based federal employees come to us after enduring ongoing sexual harassment at their workplace. Those cases require immediate and aggressive action to put a stop to hostile work environments. When you choose our law firm to handle your case, we will fight for you.
