In 2018, and in Nevada in particular, sexual harassment cases are on the rise. With many large name people falling under the microscope for past sexual misconduct along with the #metoo movement that has rocked the nation in the past year, more and more law firms are taking on these types of cases in Nevada. The difference between many of them and us is that we have been taking these cases since 2007.
Even before the #metoo movement and the rise in victims coming forward, our law firm has been getting six figure settlements for clients in these types of cases. We do it by focusing on one important thing: How has the company failed you? It is built into the nature of corporations to put profit above their desire to protect even their own employees. At Ace Law Group, we know this simple fact and we use it to our client’s advantage.
We also have experience on our side. We know what the trends have been in settlements over the past ten years in Nevada because we have been fighting these cases on the front lines this whole time. We also know that experience tells us that sometimes we cannot take the settlement because sometimes… you HAVE to fight. You HAVE to go to Court.
Sexual harassment occurs in the workplace and are more common place than you think. To protect yourself make sure you do the following:
(1) Report the offending behavior to a manager or Human Resources;
(2) Keep a written record of what happened and when; and
(3) Consult an attorney.*
