Each year sexual harassment results in thousands of complaints with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), including claims of wrongful discharge and wrongful termination.

Do I Have a Good Sexual Harassment Case?
The first thing our Atlanta sexual harassment attorney team does is determine if you have a good case.
A good sexual harassment case will generally fall into one of two categories: (1) hostile work environment or (2) "quid pro quo" sexual harassment.
A hostile work environment is illegal. A work environment becomes hostile when you are exposed to unwelcome and often sexually charged conduct that is "severe or pervasive."
Factors that make sexual harassment severe or pervasive include:
- The frequency of the workplace harassment
- The severity of the workplace harassment
- The nature of the harassment in being physically threatening or humiliating
Sexual harassment may also take the form of a "quid pro quo." Quid pro quo harassment is the most commonly recognized form of sexual harassment. It happens when a supervisor threatens or changes your working conditions because you will not agree to participate in sexual advances.
Questions about what is and is not sexual harassment become complicated. Involving our Atlanta sexual harassment lawyers as early as possible is critical.

Choosing the Right Atlanta Sexual Harassment Lawyers Can Make All the Difference
Working with experienced Atlanta sexual harassment attorneys can be the key to protecting your rights and your job.
Employers will deny that you have suffered workplace discrimination. They will even protect your harasser. There are many complex rules, regulations, and laws you must follow to protect yourself from harassment and retaliation.
Your first step should be working with an Atlanta sexual harassment lawyer.
Employees frequently make the mistake of believing that if they remain silent the harassment will go away. Our legal team will help you make a well-documented and effective sexual harassment complaint.
Employees also wrongly believe that if the harassment gets bad, their employer will automatically protect them. Don't make these mistakes.
The U.S. Supreme Court has said that sexual harassment victims must use their employer's internal complaint procedure. This means that if you do not properly complain or make a poor-quality complaint, you will likely lose in court.
We won't let this happen.
Our experienced Atlanta sexual harassment attorneys will give you the support you need each step of the way.
We will help you prepare a proper and effective complaint. We will assist you throughout the complaint process. We will make sure your harasser knows their conduct is unwelcome and that you know your rights.
We will ensure your voice is heard. And, if the harassment does not stop, we will help you hold your employer and harasser accountable.
