Understanding Sexual Harassment and Your Rights

Has a co-worker made unwelcome sexual advances toward you? Are emails from your supervisor making you uncomfortable because they contain sexual innuendos? Does your supervisor watch pornography in the work place or ask you questions about your personal life? If you believe you are being sexually harassed at work, now is the time to take action. Talking with a Chicago employment lawyer is an important first step. With extensive knowledge of sexual harassment laws and more than two decades of experience protecting employee rights, the Law Offices of Fern Trevino can offer you sound advice and guidance.

Areas of Concentration: Sexual Harassment & Retaliation

The Law Offices of Fern Trevino has been helping executives and employees with sexual harassment claims since 1993. We serve the greater Chicagoland area, limiting our practice to the representation of and counsel to employees to avoid any conflicts of interest that could arise by representing employers. We understand that sexual harassment is a sensitive issue, that it can cause severe stress, and that it can severely impact one’s ability to work and thrive in the workplace. We are committed to providing the highest quality client service and legal representation in all types of sexual harassment cases. We represent men and women who have been sexually harassed or have been wrongfully accused of sexual harassment.

Sexual harassment is not only unwanted touching, sexual battery or sexual assault. Sexual harassment includes, among other things, comments of a sexual nature, sexual innuendoes, lewd or sexist remarks, sexual jokes, questions or comments about intimate relationships, inappropriate comments about physical appearance, and viewing, showing or discussing pornography. Reporting requirements can vary depending on whether the harasser is a manager with authority to hire and fire or is just a co-worker.

The law forbids retaliation against employees who report sexual harassment and/or object to or refuse unwanted advances. Retaliation may occur through wrongful termination, unjustified discipline, refusal to promote, demotion, reduction in hours or work, denial of a bonus or raise, transfer to a less desirable shift, or exposure to other less favorable conditions of employment.

The firm negotiates mediates, arbitrates and litigates claims of sexual harassment and retaliation for complaining of or objecting to sexual harassment.
