#MeToo – Sexual Harassment has no place in the workplace

#MeToo – Sexual Harassment has no place in the workplace

#MeToo, the social media clarion call bringing awareness to sexual harassment, hostile work environments and worse, sexual violence against women in the workplace, is not a new phenomena to lawyers that fight for women.  HDSL Law Firm has fought for women, prosecuting claims through the Illinois Department of Human Rights, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and the State and Federal Courts.

 

What makes these fights difficult, however, is that the law requires all such claims to begin with the Illinois Department of Human Rights and/or the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and the law provides only a short time to file a complaint. If you have been harassed, subjected to a sexually hostile work environment or victimized sexually, call us.  We can help you stand up and speak out.

For more information, please visit the Illinois Department of Human Rights and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission at the following sites:
