Employment Law

Despite longstanding legislation outlawing sexual harassment, it remains a serious problem for many women in the workforce. Many employers frequently attempt to cover up incidents of sexual harassment and ultimately punish the woman who complained. Employers give little recognition to the pain and suffering caused to the victims, who are often forced to choose between the extreme stress of working in a hostile environment or going without an income. A person experiencing sexual harassment needs sound legal advice. Recent court decisions have introduced additional complexities and legal barriers to the successful pursuit of sexual harassment claims. Without an attorney knowledgeable about the law and familiar with the dynamics of how employers deal with sexual harassment, a victim of sexual harassment is likely to have little success in achieving a just outcome.

We at Nichols & Eberth handle not only sexual harassment matters, but nearly every other type of employment law issue including:

  • Employment Discrimination
  • Fringe Benefits
  • Whistleblowers and other wrongful termination claims
  • Noncompetition Clauses
  • Employment Contracts
  • Family and Medical Leave Act
  • Severance Packages

Depending on the type of matter and the circumstances, we at Nichols & Eberth sometimes pursue lawsuits on a contingent fee basis, where any attorney fee is paid out of the recovery
