Sexual Harassment Lawyers

Aggressive discrimination attorneys in Chicago

Sexual harassment is a form of discriminatory behavior that leaves the victim feeling marginalized and debased. Fortunately, there are laws protecting employees from sexual harassment in the workplace. If you have been the target of sexual harassment, you want an experienced, compassionate attorney. If you or one of your employees have been accused of committing sexual harassment, Goldman & Ehrlich can investigate these claims, determine whether the law was violated and represent you in court. For more than 25 years, Chicago discrimination attorneys at Goldman & Ehrlich have provided personal counsel and aggressive litigation services in sexual harassment cases.

If you have been a victim of sexual harassment in your workplace you deserve an experienced attorney fighting for you. Contact Goldman & Ehrlich today to get started on your case, call 312.332.6733 or fill out the online contact form.

Defining sexual harassment in the workplace

Sexual harassment consists of a pattern of unwelcome behavior that might include:

  • Requests for sexual favors
  • Stalking
  • Physical contact
  • Off-color jokes
  • Flirting
  • A sexually offensive work environment
  • Sexual comments or innuendos

The law recognizes two types of sexual harassment:

  • Quid pro quo — where a superior makes an employee’s hiring, retention, performance review, promotion or benefits dependent upon sexual favors
  • Hostile work environment — where a pattern of unwelcome sexual talk or conduct is so pervasive that an employee cannot be comfortable on the job

Personal counsel and aggressive litigation

The Goldman & Ehrlich advantage includes direct access to partner attorneys who personally manage your litigation from start to finish. While other discrimination attorneys in Chicago seek to organize large groups of plaintiffs in class actions, we prefer to deal with you one on one to resolve your particular conflict in the best way for you. We are skilled trial attorneys with numerous appearances before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the Illinois Human Rights Commission and the circuit court, winning monetary damage awards and orders for injunctive relief. We’ve also successfully defended managers, executives and businesses from false allegations or sexual harassment.
