Severe Sexual Harassment and Assault and Battery
Briski Law Firm
San Jose, California, Sexual Assault Attorneys
If you are a victim of severe sexual assault at work or at a work-related event, you need to take action now. If you haven't already, contact a police officer in order to document your testimony and collect any evidence, (including DNA) and then contact an experienced employment law attorney who can protect your rights and interests.
At the Briski Law Firm, our two lawyers have more than 60 years of combined experience. We have the experience to help you obtain a recovery from your co-worker's, supervisor's or manager's actions. We are willing to go up against anyone to ensure you are justly compensated for the serious assault you endured. These claims are difficult for the sexual assault victim to talk about, let alone pursue; we are well attuned to the issues in these cases and will assist women in taking the courageous step to stand up for their rights.
We put our experience to use in every case. We handle severe workplace sexual harassment, including assault and battery cases involving:
- Inappropriate touching: hitting and groping
- Sexual threats
Fighting for a Successful Outcome
Employees are protected against sexual misconduct in a work relationship by several laws and agencies, including California's Fair Employment and Housing Act and the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. In some cases, it is better to file a claim under the state law because they offer better protection and employee rights. We know the state and federal laws that protect you, and will pursue the option that best fits your needs.
Our mission is to ensure you are rightly compensated for any physical, professional and emotional damages you suffered as the result of the attack.
Be Proactive. Preserve Evidence.
In general, sexual assaults are often the classic "he said, she said" cases. It is critical to preserve evidence that favors your side of the story — the truth. Because of our experience in employment law and sexual assault and harassment cases, we know what evidence is necessary to successfully assert your claim. We will thoroughly investigate your claim, and gather and preserve proof that you have been harmed.
