Sexual harassment can make a workplace intimidating, offensive, or downright hostile. Because workers have a right to a safe and professional workplace, sex or gender-based discrimination is absolutely inexcusable and should not be ignored.
If you are experiencing sexual harassment in your place of work from a manager, supervisor, coworker, or someone else, our Morgantown sexual harassment lawyers want to hear from you. Depending on the circumstances of your case, you may be owed damages to compensate you for lost wages and/or benefits, emotional distress, related medical or psychological counseling expenses, and more.
