Our attorneys fight for justice
Sexual harassment in any form should never be tolerated in the workplace. When someone goes to work, they should never have to worry about being the victim of unwanted sexual advances or sexual assault.
Unfortunately, sexual harassment remains one of the most common forms of workplace harassment. And since such cases can often be very sensitive in nature, many victims of sexual harassment or assault are not sure about what to do afterwards.
Fortunately, you have come to the right place. Our experienced West Virginia sexual harassment attorneys at Klie Law Offices can help you every step of the way with your sexual harassment complaint. We know the law and take such cases very seriously.
Types of claims
There are many different types of sexual harassment complaints covered by West Virginia's employment laws. Some of the most common - and most serious - sexual harassment complaints include:
- Unwanted sexual advances
- Unwanted physical contact
- Unwanted sexual contact
- Sexual assault (including rape)
- Inappropriate sexual comments
- Displaying sexually explicit material in the workplace
In many instances, sexual harassment may represent a sexual crime. In such cases, law enforcement may become part of the investigation and the perpetrator of such crimes may face criminal prosecution. But law enforcement doesn't work for you - their job is to deal with the offender, not take care of the victim. Whatever the circumstances of your complaint, we can help you pursue justice.
Know your rights
As your attorney, we can represent you in all matters involving your sexual harassment claim. This includes meeting directly with your employer on your behalf to file a formal complaint. We can also represent you during all court proceedings and interactions with law enforcement.
It's also important to remember that the clock is running in most sexual harassment cases. Often, victims of sexual harassment only have one or two years to initiate legal proceedings. The one-year statute of limitations applies to 2nd and 3rd degree sexual abuse cases. There is no statute of limitations for 1st degree sexual abuse cases in West Virginia.
