A Full-Service Employment Law Firm
Working for a living can be stressful enough without having to worry about difficulties in your workplace from your employer. Sexual harassment, discrimination, wrongful termination, and other employment issues are common across many fields of work. When you become a victim, you can turn to our experienced team of employment attorneys at Stillwell Law Office.
Sexual harassment in the workplace comes in many different forms, from unwelcome sexual advances to comments, gestures, and even unsolicited physical contact. These actions are strictly prohibited under the law and if you have experienced them, you have the right to take legal action against the responsible party.

We can help you determine the best course of action to take against your former employer.
