Case Summary

Sexual Harassment

Represented a female employee in a retaliation claim against the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections. Our client was suspended and terminated after she complained of sexual harassment and a hostile work environment at the hands of her supervisors. Some of the reported conduct included unwelcomed emails and statements of a sexual nature, screaming at and belittling our client in front of others, throwing objects at her, locking her out of areas from which she needed to perform her job, and following her around. Our client was returned to her job, reimbursed for wages and benefits, and also received a monetary settlement.
