Sexual Harassment

Chris Wesierski heads up this area of the practice and has published in two different journals on the continuing violation doctrine. Mr. Wesierski has tried cases in federal court under Title VII and in state court under governmental claims or typical causes of action for all kinds of claims of harassment or discrimination. Many companies and individuals consult the Firm on wage and hour questions, discrimination issues, or claims of sexual misconduct against key employees or directors or the owner of the company.

The Firm’s personnel are trained to handle all cases in a confidential manner, which is frequently required in cases of this nature. Correct assessments as to liability and value are obtained as quickly as possible and then decisions about what to do to handle the matter in the best means possible are made so as to minimize publicity, cost and repercussions within the company.

The Firm then advises about any changes necessary at the client’s company to avoid any potential problems in the future.

Mr. Wesierski is a member of The James Editorial Group for sexual harassment articles and has significant expertise in this complex area of the law.

Our firm provides training in sexual harassment prevention to comply with the recent changes in the law brought about by AD 1825 (Government Code Section 12950.1) This change requires employers with 50 or more employees to provide their supervisors with extensive “interactive” training and education by the end of 2005.

We are able to bring a seminar to your location for a reasonable flat fee and supply your company with the required certificates verifying that your supervisors have completed this necessary training.
