Why an Attorney Is Vital to Proving Your Employer Sexually Harassed You
Proving a sexual harassment case is never easy. Discrimination can be subtle, and your employer will never outright admit that it's occurring. If you suspect you're the victim of sexual harassment at your job, you don't want to try to handle protecting your important constitutional rights alone. You have enough concerns dealing with your circumstances; let a knowledgeable attorney partner with you to achieve justice.
Hiring an Attorney Is a Crucial First Step in Your Sexual Harassment Case
If you're like many victims of sexual harassment, you may have many questions about what you should do and your rights. Here's why hiring an experienced sexual harassment attorney is a smart early decision to make:
- Complex laws. Idaho laws and federal laws governing sexual harassment are complicated. You need an experienced sexual harassment attorney who understands them and stays current on changes in the laws or their interpretation by judges.
- Strict deadlines. You must file an administrative complaint within strict state and federal statutes of limitations—or time periods—in order to have a right to sue your employer. An attorney can ensure filing the administrative complaint happens before these deadlines expire.
- Building your case. An attorney who's experienced in handling sexual harassment cases will know what documents and witnesses are important to building your claim of discrimination against your employer. He'll be skilled in taking witnesses’ depositions to obtain favorable information and in subpoenaing documents that can help prove you experienced discrimination in the workplace.
- Valuing your claim. An attorney with a track record of success in sexual harassment cases understands the strengths and weaknesses in your case and how much compensation you could be entitled to receive.
- Pursuing your claim. An experienced lawyer has the necessary skills to negotiate a fair settlement with your employer if that's possible; or file an administrative complaint and lawsuit for you if your employer is unreasonable.
