In recent years, there has been a significant increase in the volume of litigation related to workplace sexual harassment. Clyde Snow’s Labor & Employment attorneys are experienced in handling sexual harassment claims, including quid pro quo and hostile work environment actions. Sexual harassment cases include cases involving any form of discrimination based on sex, gender, pregnancy or pregnancy-related conditions, or sexual orientation and typically arise under the federal Title VII and/or the Utah Antidiscrimination Act. Clyde Snow attorneys have vast experience performing internal investigations and representing their clients in sexual harassment cases before the EEOC, the Utah Antidiscrimination and Labor Division (UALD) of the Utah Labor Commission, and in state and federal courts.
Sexual harassment claims generally must begin in the EEOC and/or UALD. UALD cases may then be appealed internally within the Utah Labor Commission, while the procedure for EEOC claims is to request a Right-to-Sue Letter that allows that employee to file a lawsuit in federal or state court. Clyde Snow has substantial knowledge and experience of each of these phases of litigation and will help guide your company through the process and help position you to achieve a favorable outcome.
