NH Racial and Sexual Harassment

The law allows someone in a protected class (age, sex, disability, race, sexual orientation) to sue their harasser, as well as their company/employer, if the employer fails to take action to stop and/or prevent further harassment from occurring. If the harassing is so severe and frequent that it affects the victim's ability to do his or her job, this could be considered a hostile work environment.

Sexual harassment cases most frequently arise in the workplace and can result from either direct harassment by a supervisor or boss, or from a hostile work environment. If you feel that harassment is occurring, it is important to make clear that the harassing conduct is not welcome and to report it to a superior. If you feel you may be the victim of sexual harassment, our New Hampshire personal injury attorneys are available to provide a consultation to discuss your rights and the ways in which the problem could be solved.

Generally, New Hampshire claims regarding harassment must be filed with the appropriate administrative agency before a suit is filed. In many cases, unless your discrimination case is filed within 180 days, your ability to recover will be lost. As a result, it is important to contact an attorney as soon as the offensive conduct takes place.
