Sexual Harassment Law Lawyers In Twelve Mile Indiana

Twelve Mile is an unincorporated community in Adams Township, Cass County, Indiana. Its name is thought to come from its location that is approximately 12 miles from the cities of Logansport, Peru and Rochester, but this is just an old wise tale. The town was located on the twelve mile marker of the railroad that the town grew around. The eastern portion of the town was formerly known as Hen Peck; but as the two small towns grew they became one town that was referred to as Twelve Mile.

What is sexual harassment law?

Sexual harassment is a form of sex discrimination. Unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature constitutes sexual harassment when submission to or rejection of this conduct explicitly or implicitly affects an employment, unreasonably interferes with an work performance or creates an intimidating, hostile or offensive work environment. Lawyers who handle sexual harassment cases represent individuals -- usually employees or students -- who have been victimized by unwanted verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature, or subjected to sexually offensive behavior that creates an unfavorable environment. Sexual harassment attorneys may also represent employers, school districts, and businesses that are named defendants in sexual harassment lawsuits.
