The workplace sexual harassment lawyers at Whistleblower Law Group help employees in the tech industry pursue lawsuits and maximize compensation for sexual harassment. We assist tech developers, designers, analysts, managers, administrators, sales representatives, customer service representatives, and other employees in fighting back against sexual harassment and holding employers accountable.

A recent report from tech social network Blind revealed that 37% of respondents on the platform had seen or experienced workplace sexual harassment. A report by Mine the Gap found even higher numbers, with nearly half of tech industry respondents reporting that they had experienced or witnessed harassment in the last five years. The report found that harassment in tech was more prevalent than in any other industry surveyed. 

Sexual harassment in tech is real, and it can happen to anyone. Although most victims are women, harassment can happen to men, too, along with people of all races, sexual orientations, ages, and job functions.

  • Amazon

How to Defend Your Sexual Harassment Claim and Earn a Significant Reward

In order to win a sexual harassment lawsuit, the plaintiff must prove one of two things: 

  1. The harasser engaged in annoying, upsetting, or unwelcome behavior that was frequent or severe enough to create an environment that was difficult to work in (known as hostile work environment)
  2. The harasser offered a benefit in exchange for sexual favors, or they threatened retaliation if sexual advances were not accepted (known as quid pro quo)

Quid pro quo harassment usually happens one-on-one in secret, but a hostile work environment is often more apparent and affects more people. Common examples include:

  • Rubbing your shoulders, brushing past you, groping you, or touching you in other unwanted ways
  • Asking about your love life
  • Sharing sexual jokes, images, or videos through email
  • Saying derogatory things about you because of your gender
  • Calling you by a pet name
  • Commenting on your appearance

Harassment may be perpetuated by a coworker, a founder, an investor, a supervisor, a customer, a third-party vendor, or anyone else who works with you, of any gender or sexual orientation.

If you have been the victim of any of the behaviors listed here, our tech sexual harassment lawyers are prepared to help you pursue a claim. We help tech employees nationwide. Contact us today to learn more: 877.858.8018 or [hidden email].

Why Do I Need a Tech Industry Sexual Harassment Lawyer?

Technology startups and established companies are known for their ruthlessness. They are million and billion-dollar companies that will do everything they can to protect their reputations, even if that means disparaging or discrediting an employee who rocks the boat. Sexual harassment lawsuits frequently draw national media attention that is difficult to navigate as an individual.

Particularly in the tech industry, the risk of being fired or blackballed for reporting sexual harassment is high. You must have someone on your side who can protect you from retaliation and secure your livelihood.

With our deep understanding of sexual harassment law at the state and federal levels, Whistleblower Law Group has helped numerous tech employees reach positive outcomes, preserve their careers, and recover substantial payouts. Our unique legal strategy, refined over two decades of working with victims of sexual harassment, increases our clients’ chances of a successful claim.

How Our Lawyers Help You Maximize Compensation

Victims of sexual harassment may be entitled to court-ordered damages to compensate them for the harassment they suffered. This may include damages for medical costs, pain and suffering, lost past and future wages, attorneys’ fees, and court costs. 

Plaintiffs may be compensated for workplace retaliation as well. If you were terminated, demoted, moved to less desirable projects, bullied, or discriminated against at work because you reported harassment, outside lawyers can pursue additional damages in an anti-retaliation case on your behalf. 

If you believe you have a claim, Whistleblower Law Group can help you determine the damages you may be entitled to. We pursue maximum compensation aggressively and efficiently for every client.
