Sexual Harassment Claims in Idaho Require Expeditious Handling
In Idaho, a claimant seeking damages arising from sexual harassment has only 300 days from the date of the occurrence in which to file a Charge of Discrimination with the Idaho Human Rights Commission. The Charge of Discrimination should also include all federal claims under the jurisdiction of the US Equal Employer Opportunity Commission (EEOC). If an employer has retaliated against the Claimant by firing or demoting the claimant after the claimant has notified the employer of the discriminatory act(s), then the Charge of Discrimination include reference to the act of retaliation. Failure to file the charge of discrimination in a timely fashion could result in the claim being time barred.
Any claimant seeking damages for sexual harassment should consult an experienced trial lawyer in an intial free consultation to ascertain the claimant's legal rights and remedies and to help properly frame and serve a Charge of Discrimination required by the Idaho Code to prevent delay or denial pretaining to the claim.
