How much is a sexual harassment claim worth?

If you sue a company because you suffered sexual harassment in the workplace, the most you can get in damages under federal law is $300,000. That's a pittance to large corporations. However, that's the cap written into the Civil Rights Act of 1991's Title VII, where sexual harassment is addressed. That amount hasn't been adjusted for inflation in the decades since that law was implemented -- even as the long-term repercussions for victims have become more openly discussed and better understood.

Recent sexual harassment poll has some surprising findings

Sexual harassment in the workplace has received increasing attention in recent years -- in part thanks to the #Metoo movement, which took down some major players in entertainment, like Harvey Weinstein, and other industries. So why does a recent Gallup poll show that men in this country are less concerned about workplace harassment now than they were two years ago when that movement grabbed international headlines?

Major companies can't afford to ignore sex harassment claims

For better and worse, large corporations in America tend to set the workplace standards that other companies emulate. Unfortunately, one of America’s largest and best-known companies chose to send the wrong message about sexual assault and harassment in the workplace.

What is a hostile work environment?

Everyone has the right to a safe work environment. And these rights extend beyond the physical environment. They also include an employee's rights against workplace harassment and discrimination.
