Hagens Berman's attorneys recently achieved a nationwide sexual harassment settlement on behalf of 16,000 women and also tried the first ever sexual harassment case in Washington state, and has represented women violated by Harvey Weinstein, as well as USC alumnae abused by the university's former gynecologist, Dr. George Tyndall. Our firm is committed to protecting and empowering individuals.
At Hagens Berman, we believe no one is above the law, and that no position of power should shield someone from being held accountable.
Right now, we are witnessing the silencing, belittling and abuse that women everywhere in this nation are subjected to. They are subjected to a system that does not respect them. Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s continued nomination to the Supreme Court, and the backlash against the brave survivors who have stepped forward to report sexual assault, are both unacceptable.
We believe survivors. Our firm’s sexual harassment attorneys have protected their rights for decades throughout their legal careers, and we are dedicated to upholding the rights of the most vulnerable. Women should be heard, respected and protected from systemic abuse.
Sexual harassment is present and pervasive in many workplaces, industries and professional environments, and has damaged the lives and careers of countless individuals. It affects hundreds of thousands of women and men in the U.S., 51 percent of which are harassed by an authority figure, making it harder to come forward for fear of retaliation.
All too often, acts of sexual harassment and sexual misconduct are protected by systemic cover-ups by companies and organized agreements between those in power. Particular industries are more susceptible to these cover-ups including: entertainment, commercial real estate, law enforcement, politics, military, tech, sports media, finance, restaurants and hospitality, advertising and trucking. But sexual harassment is pervasive in many other environments and is often obscured from view for years.
In these industries, victims are routinely subjected to widespread policies and practices that create an environment promoting quid pro quo arrangements in which victims feel pressured to take part in sexual acts and feel powerless against unwanted advancements. Victims are also often punished for not taking part.
