Common Mistake #11 – Not Getting an Attorney Involved Early in the Process

Categories: Common Mistakes

Victims often wait too long to get an attorney involved in their sexual harassment case. It is best to get an attorney involved in your case as early as possible. Attorneys will often make a demand for settlement before the victim files an administra
tive complaint with the Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH) or the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). An attorney can help a sexual harassment victim to prepare to file a complaint with the DFEH or EEOC to make sure that all potential legal claims are included. A sexual harassment attorney knows the process and can help a victim in this unfamiliar legal territory to protect a victim’s rights and choose the best strategy with which to move forward.
