Harassment Claim Defense Attorney in Seattle

Legal Assistance When You’ve Been Accused of Harassment

You may need to defend against a corporate lawsuit brought against your company if an employee accuses other employees of harassment, including sexual harassment, and brings a lawsuit forward. The likely allegations against your company would include that your policies or practices fostered the existence of a hostile work environment.

Hostile work environments can exist when employees feel threatened by harassment based upon the following and more:

  • Race
  • Gender
  • Religion
  • National Origin

If you’re facing a harassment accusation of any kind, or are accused of creating a hostile work environment, this is a serious issue that you must immediately address. At NWBizLaw, we know this situation can be dire and timing can be critical. Our harassment claim defense attorney in Seattle is able and prepared to help you identify evidence that can mitigate your responsibility in the claim and help you reach a favorable outcome in a settlement or trial.

If you’re accused of creating a hostile work environment that allowed harassment of any kind to occur, contact NWBizLaw online or call (206) 565-0090 for legal assistance.

Sexual Harassment Claims

Sexual harassment claims can be among the most intimidating an employer can face – especially with heightened scrutiny against those accused of it or allowing it to occur. As serious as these claims need to be taken when an accuser comes forward, the gravity of the situation doesn’t diminish if you’re an employer trying to battle against what you recognize as extortion or an attempt to tarnish your reputation. NWBizLaw can help if you’re engaged with a sexual harassment claim or need to come forward with one. Reach out to us for help immediately!

What are Common Forms of Harassment in the Workplace?

Harassment in the workplace is a serious allegation. Some common forms of workplace harassment include:

  • Bullying and cyberbullying
  • Physical harassment
  • Sexual harassment
  • Harassment from suppliers, vendors, or customers
  • Psychological harassment
  • Discrimination

How Am I Responsible When I Didn’t Know?

You, as the company’s owner, don’t have to be directly involved in the alleged harassment to be held liable for it. You may not even have been aware of the incident or incidents that have landed a lawsuit in your lap. As far as the law is concerned, your awareness doesn’t really matter – and it might even count against you because it could be argued that your lack of awareness allowed the harassment to occur.

Despite the best and most meaningful policies you have on paper to protect your employees, none of them mean much without diligence paid toward ensuring they’re carried out. We can work with you to investigate harassment claims against your companies, go over your policies and procedures, and review the facts to help make sure no stone is left unturned that the opposition can use to leverage unfair claims about your actions or intentions.

There can be a way for you to endure a harassment claim. Contact our harassment claim defense attorney in Seattle online or give us a call at (206) 565-0090 to begin a discussion about how we can help you.
