Sexual Harassment Law Lawyers In Ibapah Utah

Ibapah is a small unincorporated community in far western Tooele County, Utah, United States, near the Nevada state line. The town is located near the Deep Creek Mountains. The site was originally established in 1859 by Mormon missionaries sent to teach the local Native Americans farming methods. A Pony Express station operated here in 1860 and 1861, and the town was on an early alignment of the Lincoln Highway. It is currently inhabited mostly by the Goshute Indian tribe, with scattered farmlands and a trading post belonging to more recent settlers. A post office operated at Ibapah from 1883 to 1980. Originally named "Deep Creek" for a creek of the same name in the area, the name was later changed to Ibapah. "Ibapah" is an anglicized form of the Goshute word Ai-bim-pa which means "White Clay Water". The town is isolated and is usually reached by going out of Utah into Nevada and back into Utah. The climate is typical of that of a high elevation Great Basin location.

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.
