New Hampshire Sexual Harassment Lawyers (BPA)
Sexual harassment claims are a form of discrimination and are prohibited by both state and federal laws. BPA has become one of the notable law firms handling cases of sexual harassment in New Hampshire. Our attorneys are known for their knowledge, professionalism, and aggressive advocacy.
Types of Sexual Harassment
BPA’s professionals have experience assisting individuals in a variety of sexual harassment matters. Sexual harassment claims can generally be grouped into two categories: quid pro quo claims and those involving a hostile work environment.
When most people think of sexual harassment claims, they think of what is known as quid pro quo harassment. Quid pro quo cases arise when a supervisor requires some sort of sexual act as a requirement of obtaining a benefit (or avoiding a negative consequence) in the workplace. An example of this would be when a supervisor requires sexual acts before giving an employee a raise or promotion.
Hostile work environment cases arise when an employee is subject to repeated offensive conduct in the workplace. In these types of cases, the conduct may be from a supervisor or a co-worker. While these types of cases are more difficult than the traditional quid pro quo claims, our attorneys have successfully litigated cases for this type of harassment under both federal and state laws.
BPA has counseled clients facing uncomfortable conditions in their work place and were unsure of how to handle such difficult circumstances. Many employees also fear retaliation from superiors or other co-workers, preventing the individual from voicing his or her concerns. Clients have come to us for assistance in stopping offensive conduct. If you think you are the victim of harassment and are unsure of your options or the steps you should take, please contact us at 603-225-7170 or toll-free at 800-262-8112 for a consultation.
