Workplaces polluted by sexual harassment, sex- and gender-based discrimination, and retaliation can turn even the best jobs and career opportunities into waking nightmares. Working in environments where these kinds of toxic behaviors are directed at you—or are an unavoidable part of the on-the-job culture—can threaten to rob you of your dignity and leave you feeling like there's nothing you can do and nowhere you can turn for help.
While abusers often work hard to make their targets feel isolated and without options, nothing could be further from the truth. You aren't powerless, you aren't alone, and you've come to the right firm for help.
