A Reliable Ally for Sexual Harassment Victims

At Thatcher Law Firm, our employment law attorneys represent victims of sexual harassment at major corporations, small businesses, and in the public sector. If you have been subjected to sexual harassment in violation of your rights under state or federal law, contact one of our attorneys. We serve employees throughout Maryland, northern Virginia and the District of Columbia.

Extensive Knowledge of Sexual Harassment Laws

The law recognizes two general forms of sexual harassment: hostile workplace and quid pro quo.

  • Hostile workplace sexual harassment requires an employee to prove that they were exposed to sexually offensive words or conduct that were sufficiently severe or pervasive to result in a sexually hostile work environment.
  • Quid Pro Quo harassment occurs when an employee is pressured by a person in authority to exchange sexual favors in return for a job benefit, or in order to avoid an adverse action.

If you are concerned about retaliation for filing a sexual harassment complaint or need advice about the best way to present your problem, we can advise and guide you to protect your interests.

Effective Advocacy

Our lawyers know how to investigate, present, and prove charges of workplace sexual harassment claims. Because of the sensitivity of the facts that harassment cases typically involve, we can explain a broad range of options suited to resolving your case on terms that are best for you.

 We can also advise you about the law of constructive discharge. A constructive discharge occurs when an employee resigns from a position because the working environment is so intolerable that no reasonable person could be expected to endure it. Under such circumstances, it may be determined that the employer has, in effect, terminated employment by allowing the working environment to deteriorate. Before you quit and claim that you were fired under a constructive discharge theory, however, be sure to consult with a legal expert. This is a very difficult claim to prove, and it is important to get legal advice from an expert before you resign.

Thatcher Law Firm has more than 30 years of experience with the investigation and proof of complex employment law claims in metro Washington on both sides of the Potomac. We also advise employers about the most effective ways to prevent, investigate, and resolve sexual harassment claims.
