When should you see an attorney if you're be sexually harassed at work?
When should you see an attorney if you're be sexually harassed at work? Featuring Attorney Travis Hollifield of the Hollifield Legal Centre in Winter Park, Florida.
Attorney Tom Olsen: Travis, when you take on a typical sexual harassment client these days, generally, is she still working at the company or is generally, she already left the company?
Attorney Travis Hollifield: I'd say it's about 50/50.
Attorney Tom Olsen: In your perfect world, is the person that's calling you hopefully still working at the business so you can lay more groundwork about pursuing their case ultimately?
Attorney Travis Hollifield: Well, it certainly helps to have an attorney early in the process because, as we mentioned earlier in the hour, a skilled attorney with experience in employment law can guide the working woman's process of complaint, such that it maximizes the potential for the problem to be resolved. It lays the groundwork later that if the problem cannot be resolved, that we're legally on surer footing.
