Experience Makes a Difference in Sexual Harassment Cases

Federal and North Carolina laws protect employees from sexual harassment and improper physical contact in the workplace. Despite these strong and well-established legal protections, which prohibit unwelcome sexual advances or demands, a sexually hostile work environment, and battery, sexual harassment continues to be a widespread problem.

If your employer is put on notice that you are the victim of unwelcome sexual advances or inappropriate sexual behavior at work, they are required to investigate and take action to protect you.

Types of Workplace Sexual Harassment

Sexual harassment in the workplace can take many different forms.  One form of sexual harassment involves requests for sexual favors by a boss or employer that results in a tangible employment action, such as a demotion or termination.  This is the “classic” scenario of a male supervisor demanding sexual favors from a female subordinate in exchange for keeping her job or securing a promotion, and then demoting or firing her for refusing those sexual advances.

Sexual harassment can also be shown by the existence of a hostile work environment. Sexually explicit jokes, name-calling, harassing language, inappropriate touching, and other forms of mistreatment towards an employee because of his or her sex or gender can be illegal.  If you experience severe or pervasive sexual harassment, you may have an actionable claim.

If your employer is put on notice that you are the victim of unwelcome sexual advances or inappropriate sexual behavior at work, they are required to investigate and take action to protect you.

Experienced legal counsel can be critical in helping employees understand not only their legal rights to work in harassment-free work environments, but also their legal responsibilities to report sexual harassment.  The attorneys at GMFM have litigated many sexual harassment cases and can help you stop the sexual harassment.

Client Testimonials

“I very much enjoyed meeting and working with Bill Mills on a fairly difficult and complicated matter. He showed a tremendous amount of sensitivity, understanding, compassion and patience during the times that we really needed it. Bill was very knowledgeable, confident, and resourceful. He was also extremely thorough, open, honest, and persistent in his efforts. Bill did not leave any stone unturned which made it possible for us to have a successful outcome. I highly recommend using Bill Mills and his firm.”

- Robert James

“Bill Mills is a fantastic trial attorney and the consummate professional. He is a tireless advocate, always well prepared, and genuinely cares about each and every client. I have had the privilege to co-counsel with Bill on two major cases, both of which resulted in excellent recoveries for our clients. Bill is a delightful person and a  pleasure to work with. I look forward to our next case together.”

- Irv Cantor, Attorney in Richmond, Va.

“I came to Glenn, Mills, Fisher, and Mahoney with an extremely difficult legal dilemma that seemed impossible to resolve fairly and favorably. I was completely floored–and relieved beyond belief–when Carlos Mahoney called the next day to let me know that he had found a way out of the morass. It was a brilliant solution. Mahoney and his assistant made a truly awful situation much easier to deal with because of the integrity which they brought to the work. They answered all my questions promptly. They never dropped the ball, and were always up to date on the issues when I called, which was no small feat, since the matter had many moving parts and extended over several years. Through it all, Mahoney offered truly wise counsel, making sure that my emotions did not get in the way of my interests. He also guided the case toward a conclusion that was far better than I ever hoped or imagined. I cannot recommend the firm more highly.”
