Tate, Attorney at Law, has the courtroom experience in Phoenix and all over Arizona that you want, and she will fight to get the resolution you deserve.

With changing attitudes toward sexual harassment, now is the time to confront the people who have tried to make you a victim. Do not let past experiences discourage you; Elizabeth D. Tate will build a legal strategy to pursue your best possible outcome.

Protect Your Rights And Your Job

The social pressure to put up with sexual harassment at work can be powerful. Comments like “He didn’t mean anything by it” or “He’s harmless” are part of the traditional boys’ club environment of many workplaces. You can reject the cultural compulsion to stay silent.

Sexual harassment comes in many forms:

  • Receiving messages with sexually explicit content
  • Inappropriate touching
  • Unwanted advances from co-workers or superiors
  • Jokes about sex or gender

Too often, in settings like these, workers are afraid of retaliation from those around them. The fear that the company you work for will suddenly become hostile toward you is a leading reason victims are reluctant to speak with a lawyer. You should not be afraid to protect yourself.

Finding The Right Strategy For Your Situation

Actions of managers and co-workers may not be intentionally malicious, but the effect of minimizing the claims of those who have been harassed is all too real. Anyone, man or woman, can be damaged by comments or actions about their sexual attractiveness or gender. You can get the outcome you need if you take the right steps.
