Sexual Harassment Law Lawyers In Port Wing Wisconsin

Port Wing is an unincorporated community in the Town of Port Wing, Bayfield County, Wisconsin, United States. It is located on Wisconsin Highway 13, 7 miles west of Herbster. The Flagg River enters Lake Superior at Port Wing's harbor. A large number of the town's inhabitants are retirees, since the town has scant economic activity and this has caused a number of young people to leave in search of better opportunities. The town's facilities include the South Shore High School, a post office, and a volunteer fire department, as well as a small historical society building with documents and photographs related to Port Wing's history. There are also several small art and craft galleries in the town. The largest employers are the South Shore High School and Everett's Fishery, named for its founder, Everett Johnson, and currently owned by his son, Eric Johnson. Logging, fishing, dairying and apple orchards were formerly the main economic activities in the town. Several orchards and dairy farms still remain, but the brownstone quarries have been flooded by rising Lake Superior waters and logging has become infrequent because of the poor quality of much of the standing timber. The largest annual event in the town is the Fish Boil, held at the Port Wing Town Hall and Pavilion. The event includes boiled trout, live music, and the like. Other events include a Lutefisk/Swedish Meatball Dinner, a Christmas Bazaar, and farmers' markets.

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.
